There are many Christmas traditions around the world, but having a gammon on the Christmas table is not really a tradition, it is more of an essential in some countries. Whether you eat it warm, cold, or as part of the late afternoon snack sarmie, gammon is a real treat.
You have the perfect Christmas table setting all planned and ready to go. You really would like to make the dinner or lunch just perfect by adding a traditional glazed gammon, but don’t know how to make one…Well, this recipe is certainly the easiest one you’ll ever make. (Great for beginner cooks.)
If you like it juicier, you can add another beer or even a little bit of water. Using a cider also works.
Take note: It can easily burn, so don’t walk away. Check regularly.
“In the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Ireland, gammon are often served at Christmas. You’ll find it in most supermarkets during Christmas time.
“The word ‘gammon’ is derived from the Middle English word for ‘ham’, gambon, which is attested since the early 15th century and derived from Old North French gambon, itself derived from Old French jambon, which is identical to the modern French word for ‘ham’.” – Wikipedia
