Organic Unsmoked Gammon

A beautiful pork joint to enjoy at any time of the year

What's the difference between gammon and ham? Well, there isn't really one. Once you've boiled and roasted a gammon it becomes a ham. So gammon is an uncooked joint and ham is a cooked one. That's the simple answer. We have a perfect recipe here.

Coombe Farm Organic gammon joints are cut from the hind leg of the pork carcass. This is a fabulously complex piece of meat, comprising a powerful group of lean muscles, their connective tissues and a generous layer of fat. The flavour is intense and the texture robust. We lightly cure our gammon joints, combining the natural flavours of organic juniper and bay with sea salt. We never use nitrites or nitrates. 

Ingredients: organic pork (99%), sea salt, organic raw cane sugar

  • Supplied: Insulated box at -18°C
  • Freezing: Will arrive frozen, use by best before date on packaging
  • Defrosted: Store between 0 - 5°C and use within 2 - 3 days

    We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.

  • All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

The traditional way to cook a gammon is in two stages. Firstly, cover the joint in water, bring to the boil and simmer for twenty minutes per 500g, plus twenty minutes extra. If you want to whack in extra flavour at this stage, add spices to the cooking liquid or substitute some of the water with apple juice or cider. Once boiled, drain the joint, trim some of the fat from the top and stud the outside with cloves or star anise. Glaze with honey and mustard or marmalade and roast in a medium oven for about half an hour. 

If you're keen to try something without the scent of Christmas spices, try braising the gammon and serving it with homemade Boston baked beans. Or give it a taste of the tropics with a pineapple and chilli glaze. For real deep-south indulgence, go the whole hog and boil your gammon in cola – it sounds bonkers but it really gives the perfect, sticky sweet-sour balance.
