Do I need to add any liquid or not? I usually roast in the oven with some black treacle on the top but thought I'd try something different.

Coke is the only liquid I use for gammon.

I don't know if you need liquid, but I use a litre of coke over the gammon to slow cook it. Apparently you aren't to use Diet Coke.

Yes if it's coke

Otherwise no- rub in your treacle, peppe and whatever else (a spoon if whole grain mustard )and shove it in. It will be delicious

Ginger beer also works really well. I don't slow cook mine but I boil it in ginger beer first before I roast it.

I used elderflower sparking spring water last week and was nervous as always use coke.

It was gorgeous!

I don't put any liquid in with mine, just pop it in and leave it on low. Falls apart when done smile

I cooked mine on low for 8 hours last weekend with a small tin of pineapple and it was lovely.

Thanks all. Will definitely try coke this week then. 8hrs on low for med joint then?

I can't bring myself to try coke or other sweet liquids, but put a couple of inches of water in with peppercorns, cloves and a bayleaf, after cooking glaze with redcurrant jelly and finish off in the oven.

Orange Fanta works too. My sister discovered this when she had run out of coke.

Pineapple juice or chunks in juice is lovely

I would recommend at least some liquid.

I usually do mine in Coke but felt like a change so tried a couple of cans of cider . Even better!

BratFarrarsPony Sun 13-Nov-16 14:13:52

I bet cider would work
Not 'white lightening' or similar though.

I always use ginger ale. Gives it the most lovely flavour. Not the sugar free one though

TupsNSups Sun 13-Nov-16 14:18:39

I bet cider works really well! I have some sachets to make mulled Cider, I might try that at Christmas.

Equal amounts of coke and ketchup. Bloody amazing

White lightening - now there is a blast from a misspent youth!! I used an average sort of cider, nothing special but it was still fab. Wondering what a fruit cider may be like to try, something like kopperberg?
