Gammon Cooked in Scrumpy Cider with Waldorf Salad and Apple Syrup

Gammon Cooked in Scrumpy Cider with Waldorf Salad and Apple Syrup

This is a great combination to go alongside one of our small gammon joints, with the flavours complementing each other perfectly.

For best results wash down with an extra can or 2 of your favourite cider.


Cinnamon sticks, 20gGAMMON IN SCRUMPY



  • 2 Cox’s apples
  • 1 head of celery, small
  • 100g of walnut halves
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 little gem lettuce


  • Place the gammon joint into water to cover and soak for 24 hours to remove excess salt
  • The next day, drain and place in a large pan, pour over all the cider and half the apple juice to cover the gammon, and add the spices. Top up with water if necessary
  • Bring to the boil and remove any scum from the liquid. Simmer for about 45-60 minutes until just cooked, then remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly in the cooking liquor
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5
  • For the glaze, mix the mustard, honey and vinegar together. Remove the gammon from the pan, drain and place on a baking tray, brush the mustard glaze all over the joint and place in an oven for about 20 minutes or until nicely glazed. Remove and leave to cool
  • To make the apple syrup, place the sugar, the remaining 500ml of apple juice and a large ladle of the cooking liquor from the gammon into a saucepan and reduce until it turns to a light caramel. Remove from the heat, take out the star anise and reserve
  • To make the salad, core and chop the apple, leaving the skin on, chop the celery (reserve any leaves for garnish), add the walnuts, a squeeze of lemon juice and the mayonnaise and mix. Break up the lettuce, place on a plate and layer up with the Waldorf mix
  • To serve, carve the gammon and serve with the salad on a large serving plate, spooning the apple syrup around
