|Honey Glazed Gammon - feeling hungry already!|
When we were in the UK in November, our gorgeous friend Caroline cooked a seriously fabulous Honey Glazed Gammon to feed all of us internationals who descended on their home on the night before the Christening.
Anyway, I'd never had gammon before and it was so yummy that I kept having more and more. I think it's all scrumptious, but my fave bits were the crunchy roasted bits on the edges - bliss! I badgered her for the recipe, and it turns out to be one of the Hairy Bikers recipes.

We headed down to Adelaide for Christmas with family and friends, and I thought I'd try to cook this for the HUGE family Christmas lunch at my parents house. First we had to find gammon. It's not a common thing in Australia, and we tootled into the butcher and asked what he thought. He reckoned it sounded pretty much like pickled pork, which he could make for us, so we ordered some to pick up in a few days.
Mum and I followed the recipe fairly well (it's pretty basic) and it came out an absolute treat. High points here for Mum who did all the hard work of boiling it etc., whilst I was out drinking bubbles with my girlfriends - I sloped in at the last moment and did the glazing and baking bit. I'd love to try it again over here in Germany, but I have absolutely no idea what I'd ask for at the butcher to get the gammon/pickled pork - any German speakers know what I should say?
Here's the recipe, hope you enjoy it!
