Best gammon ever
Absolutely beautiful piece of gammon, lean and tasty. I for one am glad that it had very little fat as it prevents me paying for something that is going to get thrown away. I roasted it in the oven and it was so moist and tender, no nasty gristle running through it like cheaper options.
This definitely wouldn't feed 15. quite frustrating as we will need to head out to buy another one to keep this one company.
serves how many?
Quote from Waitrose website: When buying a gammon joint allow 150-170g per person. This would mean the joint serves 7, not 15! It is tiny
Not what expected
No rind and hardly any fat. The picture does not represent what you get. Very disappointed and will never buy this again.
No Rind and Virtually No Fat
Last year this joint was pretty much as per the picture but this year it bears no resemblance. For some ill-thought out reason, Waitrose have decided to have a rindless, low fat version which is simply not suitable for roasting. The information label indicates that for best results "... score fat ...". What fat? Ocado have dealt with my complaint brilliantly but so glad I ordered early so I have time to get a different gammon joint for Christmas.
Not suitable for glazed baked gammon
I should have looked more closely at the picture. Call me old fashioned, but I like my gammon free range and with the rind and fat intact. That way I can produce a tasty glazed gammon joint stuck with cloves. In fact the cooking instructions for this product mentions scoring the fat before baking. Unfortunately the rind and nearly all the fat have been removed from this product, limiting the cooking options. Ocado, please let Waitrose know that we like free range and prefer to remove rind and fat, or keep it, outselves.
