I have a slow cooker, I have a smoked gammon joint - Any ideas?!!!!
soak it first to get rid of the salt, then just pop it in there with a little water....no added fat required, leave it either all day or all night, no lid lifting! it will come out tender and yummy. the aroma will drive you crazy!
i always soak and rinse well in cold water then pat dry, put in slow cooker and pour a bottle of pepsimax in with the gammon, sounds disgusting but tastes loverly!!

i used to do that too, pre diet days.....then reduce the coke and add cream for a nice sauce.
pre sw, i used to cover the joint with mustard and then pat brown sugar on it and roast it, comes out all sweet and caramelly yum yum yum!! xx
I do these loads. I put in a pan of cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins to get rid of salt. Then rinse it well under the tap. Then in the slow cooker totally on its own. I do mine on high for about 3 1/2 hours (for a 750g one)
I make mine into broth afterwards and if I'm being really nice I let dh and the kids have some for sarnies!!!

Wow never thought of doing a gammon in a slow cooker. Not sure of adding the coke though!!!! Do I need to cover the whole of it with water or just part of it?

I have cooked it in coke - it doesn't taste bad at all !!

do you need to put something at bottom of slow cooker or doesnt it matter? i read you need to put a upside down plate or halved onions to prop the gammon onto?
Do u need to add liquid when cooking a joint in a slow cooker xx
