I know you are all probably sick of Ham and Gammon after the festive period but now is a great time to buy a nice big ham as they are on offer just about everywhere.
This is pretty much a Jamie Oliver recipe out of a little booklet that my future mother in law gave me a few weeks ago, I changed it slightly as I could’t get any plum jam so ended up buying some cherry jam instead.
How long you cook the meat for will depend on the size of your joint and how well done you like it.
As well as the chilli flakes you could also add some sliced fresh chillis or sliced pickled Jalepeno towards the end of glazing.
The broth from the initial cooking can be used for soup or stock if it’s not too salty and the juices from roasting make wicked gravy.
The meat is delicious hot or cold and will last a while in an air tight container in the fridge.
