Ginger And Apricot Ham (GF DF Egg Free)

Just love a baked ham.  So easy to prepare and so many meals, sandwiches, wraps and salads options.  Also a genuine crowd pleaser to bring to gatherings. My two year old nephew could not stop asking for more of this 🙂

Tastes so much better than shop bought and you can have big thick slices

  • Silicone Pastry Brush
  • Measuring Spoons


  • Pop your gammon joint in pan

  • Pour ginger beer over the top. Add Water until almost covered.

    Bring to boil and then simmer for 56 minutes

    Rule of thumb when baking ham is to cook it for 20 minutes per 450g of weight

  • When ham is cooked take it out of pan, place in lined baking tin and leave for 30 minutes.

    Peel of skin.

  • Then score fat left in a diamond pattern

    Glaze apricot conserve over the top

    Pop in middle of oven and bake for 30 minutes

    This keeps well in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days.
