Place the gammon joint in a large pot and cover with water.

Bring to the boil then skin off any scum that rise to the top of the water.

Add vegetables and aromats.

Simmer slowly for 1 ½ - 2hrs.

I use a probe thermometer to get the best results and take off the heat when the ham reaches 68°C.

Remove from water and cool slightly.

While ham is cooling place the Chutney in a small sauce pan and warm through, this helps to spread it evenly.

Score the fat of the ham.

Baste the ham with the glaze and place in a preheated (180°C) oven for 30 minutes.

Baste at 5 minute intervals to build up a nice sticky glaze.
