The deep caramel flavor of the marinade contrasts beautifully with the salty ham. Using a pressure cooker keeps the ham moist and succulent, and finishing it in the oven gives it a lovely shiny glaze.

Using a sharp knife, score a crisscross pattern in the ham fat, cutting lines about 2.5 cm/1in deep and 2 cm/¾ in apart. Add the cloves, fennel seeds and black pepper.

Put the broccoli on a baking tray, add the olive oil and stir to mix. Very simple, easy and quick yet so versatile: eat hot or cold, with whatever vegetables and condiments you fancy, chips (perhaps with an egg), to give body to a salad or in a sandwich.

Gammon is an easily overlooked joint and yet can provide several, varied meals. Use the last few bits with some frozen peas and other vegetables to make a delicious soup.

(See earlier Leftover Ham & Frozen Pea Soup recipe) Allow pressure cooker to cool, then remove lid and place gammon joint on a plate to rest.

Use the cooking liquid to make ham stock, boiling up for 20 minutes or so with a roughly chopped onion, carrot and perhaps a stick of celery (straining off and disposing of the solids afterwards) or just on its own. Carve and serve the joint hot or cold with accompaniments of your choice.

However, for my past few food shops I’ve been buying gammon joints to make and slice my own ham, and boy can you REALLY taste the difference (at no extra cost). Cooking a gammon joint in the oven is great, but I wanted to find a quicker way to do it, so I tried the pressure cooker.

As a rule of thumb, I cooked the ham for 30 minutes per 1 kg with about one mugs worth of water added. I found it important to use the high pressure setting in order to ensure the ham is cooked through.

Leave the joint to cool for a couple of hours then carve with a folk and serrated knife. Finally, cooking a full gammon joint may leave you with more ham than you’d like.

Make this one quickly and easily on the stove top, slow cooker, or in the pressure cooker ! With the big appetites in this house, soups need to be packed full of goodness like this one.

We started making this recipe decades ago using our Dutch oven and then in the Crackpot. But when I picked up my first pressure cooker, it was a game-changer and this dinner became that much easier and faster to make.

Place any leftovers in a shallow airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 3 days. Ideally, you don’t want it to take too long for the leftovers to get to their chilled/stored temperature.

As I mentioned, if the food remains above about 35 degrees for more than 1 hour after cooking, the bacteria starts to grow. Combine 4 tbsp of cornstarch, all-purpose flour or arrowroot powder with a cup of hot broth.

Next, add the ham bone, thyme, paprika, and bay leaves, followed by the stock and beans. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While they do have distinct differences, for the purposes of this recipe they are similar enough that you can swap them out as needed. Heat the olive oil, onion, and carrot in the pressure cooker pot insert on the sauté setting.

Next, add the ham bone, thyme, paprika, and bay leaves, followed by the stock and beans. Press manual/ pressure high setting and adjust the time to cook for 5 minutes.
