I’ve just bought a bargain gammon joint from the Sainsburys Basics range. I have bought a few things from their basic range before and it’s usually quite good so I have high hopes for my little gammon joint.
It’s starting it’s food journey in the slow cooker where I plan to cook it to perfection (probably not knowing me lol). I’m going to use the stock to make a nice soup with dumplings for lunch tommorrow and I’ll see if I can find some new ideas for recipes to use the ham for. I’ll let you know what I find.
I have a couple of recipes that I have used before to cook gammon and to make the Soup and dumplings but I am going to try and find something different to do with the joint following the success of this weeks meal plan challenge (more about that later).
I know a lot of people don’t buy cheap meat for many reasons and I do try to buy organic, free range food wherever I can but if I made the decision to only eat meat that was organic and free range my food budget would need some serious work. I think it’s a gradual thing for me, I will only buy free range eggs and I have started to buy free range chickens too so I’m getting there…. Slowly but surely.
If anyone’s got any ideas what I could make, please feel free to share 😉
