Ham in Maple Syrup

This is the current star ingredient in the K-E household. Maple syrup yum yum yum.

Today we cooked a gammon coated in maple syrup and ground cloves, yep it was deeeelicious. I always find that gammon is really salty, so I soaked it for hours first and then boiled it to get rid of even more salt.

This is what it looked like when it came out of the oven.

I also roasted some potatoes and carrots to go with it.

Ham with roast potatoes, carrots, peas and cheese and parsley sauce. I made the sauce from scratch, even Mr K-E was impressed.

PS If you wonder what the difference is between gammon and ham. Well, when gammon is cooked it becomes ham. But not all ham is cooked, eg parma ham.
