Christmas Ham??

Posted by drippy-188927 - Created: 14 years ago

Does anyone know where I can buy a good ol' gammon ham (leg of) to bake for Christmas dinner?

The supermarkets here all say they have gammon joints but after trying a few they all just seem to be pork rather than ham.

Any ideas?

Drippy :o)

These hams are normally only available at the Delicatessan that sells charcuterie etc and have to be ordered depending on what weight you want. Between 3 and 5 kilos is the norm. I used to get mine at the shop in Antibes near Maison R.....t !stgeorge

Now that I too have a craving for salty ham, mustard, cloves, brown sugar I've stared hunting. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Geoffrey's don't have any and I tried the EuroBrits website - can't find them on there at all.

Jan can you give me the hyperlink to the department within EuroBrits that has gammon/ham?

Thanks

So you are looking for a cured ham to roast?

I haven't seen any down here - mostly just pork as you say. Time to get a friend to mail some gammon steaks over.
