Exceptional gammon with cider

This is a great way to cook gammon. The cider, coriander and red chilli bring a real sparkle to the meat.


  • 1.2kg/2lb 10oz boneless gammon joint (we used unsmoked but smoked would work too)
  • 500ml/17fl oz cider
  • 1 litre/1¾ pints cloudy apple juice
  • 2 sharp green apples, cored and cut into rough chunks
  • 2 x 8cm/3¼in pieces cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 fresh red chillies, seeds removed, cut into quarters
  • 1 tbsp coarsely crushed coriander seeds

For the glaze and sauce
