Based on the ham we baked at the deli every Sunday.

cost: £4-6 serves: 4
bake for up to 5 hours, but don’t forget to keep basting!

ingredients:
1 unsmoked gammon joint
12 or more whole cloves, or 2 t ground cloves
3 C 7up or other lemon soda

method:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Remove any tough skin from the gammon joint, but leave the fat on.  Place in a roasting dish, fat side up.  Poke cloves into the top of the joint, then pour over the lemonade.  Bake for a minimum of 3 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Top up the juices as needed with additional lemonade.  You can add the juices to gravy, but they will be too salty to make gravy directly.  Serve with your favourite Sunday roast sides.
