This is one of my favourite recipes and ideal for your Christmas dinner.


  • 1.3 kg gammon joint, middle cut
  • 1 orange peel
  • 30 pieces whole cloves 
  • 750 ml (24 fl oz) (cloudy apple juice)
  • 225 ml (8 fl oz) maple syrup
  • 200 g (6 oz) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 litres (135 fl oz) apple cider


  1. Score the ham and press the whole cloves into the grooves evenly.
  2. Put the ham in a slow cooker. Pour in the apple juice 6 cm (2 inches) below the surface of the ham.
  3. On top of the ham, pack the brown sugar, pressing into the cloves.
  4. Pour in the maple syrup. Flavour the apple juice with vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves and nutmeg. Mix in the orange strip to the pot.
  5. Fill the slow cooker with apple cider or as many as the slow cooker can have. Make sure it does not go over the fill line.
  6. Cover and cook for about 8 to 10 hours over low heat.
