    Evening all
    I have just purchased a new red slow cooker and I have a piece of gammon from Iceland to cook. Any ideas about how to do it and for how long please? Its probably meant to serve 3-4 ppl if that helps?!

    I just cook on its own, for about 6 hours on low. Be warned though, its almost impossible to carve, as it just falls apart, its so tender!

    I have a gorgeous gammon recipe for the slow cooker but unfortunately it has a litre of cider in it so not much good for SW :p

    I just stuck mine in the slow cooker overnight (medium, not high setting) with half a pint of cider poured over.

    I don't syn this as it isn't like the ham soaks it up, it just creates the steam needed for heat and infuses some flavour into the meat.
