Total Time 4 hours 5 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup pure orange juice
  • 750g gammon joint I used smoked but unsmoked would work too


  1. Combine the brown sugar, balsamic vinegar & pure orange juice. If you're a time saver, like me, you can just whisk it together in the slow cooker pot.
  2. As I bought a smoked joint I boiled it for 5 minutes, just to attempt to remove a little salt from the joint.

  3. Place the gammon joint into the slow cooker. Without the plastic wrapper on. 

  4. Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours. 

  5. Turn every 1 hour on high or every 2 hours on low.

  6. Remove the joint from the slow cooker. Shred the meat.

  7. Boil the glaze in a saucepan, until it thickens up. This should take a few minutes.

  8. Spread the glaze over the shredded gammon or use it as a dipping sauce.
