  • 15 lb unsmoked gammon on the bone
  • 2 shallots peeled and halved
  • 6 cloves
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 celery sticks cut into 5 cm (2 in) pieces
  • 2 tbsp English mustard
  • 5 cm 2 in piece fresh root ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

for the glaze

  • 8 oz dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 3 1/2 floz brandy or Madeira

for the chutney

  • 4 mangoes peeled, sliced and chopped into 5 cm (2 in) chunks
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 4 cardamom pods seeds removed and crushed
  • 2 cinnamon sticks roughly chopped
  • raisins 4 tbsp


  • Put the gammon in a large pan.Add the shallots, cloves, bay leaves, celery and enough cold water to cover. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer gently for about 5 hours. Remove any scum with a slotted spoon. Lift the ham out of the pan, discard the vegetables and herbs and leave the ham to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan oven/Gas Mark 6. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut away the ham's thick skin to leave an even layer of fat. Score a diamond pattern in the fat with a sharp knife. Put the ham into a roasting tin. Smother evenly with the mustard and tuck the ginger into the scored fat.
  • For the glaze, put the sugar, honey and brandy in a pan and heat until the sugar has dissolved. Brush the glaze evenly over the ham.
  • In a bowl, mix together the chutney ingredients, add any remaining glaze, then spoon around the ham.
  • Cook the ham for 30 to 40 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. Remove the ham from the roasting tin and put to one side. Stir the chutney and place under a grill for 5 minutes to allow the mango to caramelise. Serve the ham, carved in thin slices, with the chutney on the side.
