Food: Tastiest Gammon EVER



Ok, so maybe the title is a bit of a dramatic statement, but seriously, I've found my favourite most tastiest way to eat gammon and I just had to share it with you today.

"Tastiest Gammon Ever" servings="4-6" time="4+ hours" difficulty="easy"


Gammon joint

Diet Coke

1tbsp of Sweet Freedom


1) Place your gammon in a large casserole dish and fill with water. Place a lid on top and bring to the boil.

2) Once the water is boiling, drain it away so you are just left with the gammon.

3) Then cover your gammon with diet coke. Bring to the boil and reduce to simmer for around 3+ hours (depends on the size of your joint, could be more etc.)

You could finish it here and just shred the gammon and eat it that way, or:

4) Remove your gammon from the coke and place in a roasting tin. Rub in the Sweet Freedom and place in the oven for around 15 mins.

5) Remove, carve and serve.


I've left sizes and measurements our as it all depends on how many you're feeding and the size of you gammon. This was adapted from the Nigella coke gammon recipe. Technically you'd have to point this on Filling and Healthy as only gammon steaks are classed as free, but as long as I cut the fat off, I don't count it, so it depends if you're a stickler to the rules or not on points.
