Impress with little stress by cooking a succulent joint of ham, coated with the perfect piccalilli glaze


1. Place the gammon in a very large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and drain. Rinse both the gammon and the saucepan and return the gammon to the saucepan.

2. Add the onion, cloves, whole peppercorns and cinnamon stick, then fill with the apple juice. Bring to the boil and then simmer, covered, for 2 hours, topping up with water when the liquid falls below the gammon.

3. Preheat the oven to 150C/140C fan/gas 3 and drain the gammon. Line a baking tray with tin foil and place the joint, fat-side up, on it. Remove the skin with a sharp knife, leaving the layer of fat. Cover with the foil and bake for 30 mins.

4. In a frying pan, dry fry the sugar and stir until it starts to turn into a liquid, then add the piccalilli, cranberries and 3 tablespoons of the cooking liquid from the gammon. Stir thoroughly and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Add the breadcrumbs and season with the pink and black pepper.

5. Unfold the tin foil from the gammon and cover the fat with the piccalilli mixture. Bake for 35 mins. Cool at room temperature then chill or serve hot, after covering with tin foil and resting for 15 mins. Serve.
