    750g Gammon Joint - choose either smoked or plain

    3 Apricots

    2 Peaches

    1 Chicken Stock Cube

    300ml boiling water

    20g Light Soft Brown Sugar

    ½ tsp Ginger

    5ml Soy Sauce

    700g pack Frozen Jacket Potatoes

    1 pack 2 Little Gem Lettuce

    500g pack Large Vine Tomatoes

    150g Runner Beans Butter, Sea Salt and Black Pepper (to serve with the jacket potatoes)


    Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/350°F/Gas Mark 5.

    Put the gammon in a roasting dish, cover loosely with foil and bake for 80 minutes.

    Remove the tin foil for the final 20 minutes.

    Put the jacket potatoes in half way through the cooking time for the gammon - they need 40 minutes from frozen.

    For the salad trim and shred the lettuce.

    Slice the runner beans thinly.

    Chop the tomatoes, then toss them together in a salad bowl.

    For the sauce: Stone the fruit and chop into medium-sized chunks.

    Dissolve the stock cube in the boiling water.

    Put the fruit, stock, ginger and brown sugar in a small saucepan.

    Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

    When the fruit is soft, mash it with a fork.

    Add the soy sauce and stir.

    Carve the Gammon and serve with the sauce, alongside the jacket potatoes and the crisp salad.
