Nigella or Delia, or neither of the above

Someone gave us a gammon joint!

Mr C is partial to a bit of gammon, and I normally buy the ready made slices that just need grilling or frying up, with a bit of pineapple thrown in for good measure.

Now I am faced with this:

I didn’t have a clue what to do with it, but after a quick search, I found a nice, simple recipe. It starts with having to soak the joint overnight, so Mr C is going to have to wait another day for his gammon. The good thing about that recipe from the BBC is the Shopping List option, which gives you a list of everything you’ll need, in the categories you will find them in the supermarket. That makes me very happy, as I may have to brave the supermarket tomorrow.

A week or so ago, I blogged about a site I had been reading that had nice recipes with great pictures, and Richard asked when I was going to start doing it. That appears to be now! Although it depends how it goes tomorrow. If it ends up a burnt husk of gammon, I’ll delete this post and we’ll never speak of it again, okay?

  1. Whether they like it or not, a large portion of the recipe book/app/whatevever market isn’t as comfortable in the kitchen as the author. Having a suitable shopping list by aisle is pretty spot on too.

    I’ve always been confused by the ham/bacon/gammon boundaries, so any clarity on that would be gratefully appreciated. I grew up trying to avoid Celtic ‘bacon and cabbage’, so maybe I’m just scarred for life. But, that’s probably another story entirely
