About the Recipe

A Green Ham is a un-smoked brined ham that is ready for your stovetop. It may take longer to cook then a smoked ham but is delicious with a slightly sweet glaze on top after sliced.


  • 2.5Kg (5.5 lb) Fresh Brined Gammon Ham

  • 1 Large yellow onion

  • 1 tsp Peppercorns

  • 1 Bayleaf


Step 1

Slice an onion into 3 pieces and place in the bottom of a pot large enough to fit the Ham. Place the ham ontop of the onions, fill the pot with water until the ham is fully covered. Add a teaspoon of peppercorns and a bayleaf.

Step 2

Set the pot on the stove with the lid on to a heat that will provide a low simmer. When you have the simmer just starting, the ham will take about 50min/Kg (22min/lb) when your ham reaches an internal temperature of 65.5C (150 deg F). At this point turn off the stove and let rest in the pot for 40min/Kg.

Step 3

The rost can now be taken out and sliced. A nice Chutney, Mustard or Glaze goes perfectly ontop or on the side. If you wish to carmalize the glaze on top, only let the ham rest for 15min/Kg, remove from the pot and finsih glazing in the oven
