Mulled Wine Glazed Gammon

Mulled Wine Glazed Gammon

A nice big joint of ham is essential for everyones Christmas, surely? So I thought about this, and considered how you could possibly make this even more Christmassy? I know, cook it in some mulled wine and make a beautiful glaze with this, combined with marmalade, honey and mustard, honestly Christmas with every last bite. I really do recommend this one (obviously) as a beautiful centrepiece.

Serves: 4

Cooking time: Slow Cooker: 6+ hours + 20-25 minutes


For the Slow Cooker:

  • 1.4kg Smoked Gammon Joint
  • 1 Onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 Bottle Mulled Wine
  • 1 Orange, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
  • 8 Cloves
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Handful of Cranberries

For the Glaze:

  • 400ml Cooking Liqueur from the slow cooker
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 3 tbsp Marmalade


  1. Place the gammon joint in the slow cooker. Add the chopped onion, orange, and all the other slow cooker ingredients. Set the cooker on low heat for over 6 hours.
  2. Turn the gammon occasionally if it's not entirely covered, but don't stress if you can't.
  3. After the slow cooker phase, preheat the oven to 200℃ .
  4. Remove the gammon from the slow cooker. Pour 400ml of the cooking liqueur into a saucepan.
  5. Add honey, Dijon mustard, and marmalade. Simmer on medium heat for about 20 minutes until it becomes a syrupy glaze.
  6. Place the gammon on a baking tray. Use a brush to glaze the gammon with the prepared syrup. Retain some glaze for later applications.
  7. Roast the gammon in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. For best results, re-glaze every 5 minutes.

Serving Note: Once roasted, pull the ham apart. Drizzle any leftover glaze for an added touch of sweet and sticky flavor, listening to some Mariah Carey for the full Christmas experience.
