Too salty - make sure you soak before cooking

Nice quality meat but I didn't soak it as I normally would a joint from the butcher and it should say to soak it first on the label. It was therefore too salty to eat even though I only cooked it in pineapple juice and honey and it wasn't smoked.

Too small

The most common complaint in these reviews across all meat products is that people are sent joints smaller than they need, and that the range is too broad. Guess what? That's what's happened to me. I was expecting a joint of 1kg or a bit above, as the typical weight is 1.1kg, but I've got one less than 900g. I now see that the weight range is 0.74-1.39kg, which is ridiculous! The range is double the smallest weight. How can we possibly order with confidence with such a wide range? No range should be bigger than 250g. I order this product every year at Christmas, but I get the biggest one possible, about 4kg, and I have no complaints about the quality of the meat - great flavour, amazing value. But my teenage sons will not be impressed with their meagre portions this week - either that, or I will have to go without. This needs to be addressed, Ocado!

Great for slow cookers

I am a huge fan of my slow cooker and this works wonderfully in there for lunches and also dinners, we get at least a weeks worth out of this when shredded and trust me they are stuffed sarnie's, we don't scrimp on portions in our house! Better when on offer, but pork does appear to have gone up in price in recent years so still worth while then you think a pack of decent quality ham costs you £4 for 4 slices!

Kids loved it

The children loved this and it disappeared very quickly. I soaked it for a couple of hours before boiling it in fresh water with onions carrots and sage. Served carved with potatoes and peas.There was enough left to put in a chicken and ham pie for dinner the next day, Shame it's out of stock now
