  • 2 kg Cookstown gammon joint
  • 6 litres Coca- Cola to cover and poach the ham You may need a little more depending on the size of the pot
  • 1 Jar Robertson’s marmalade
  • 1 orange
  • Handful of cloves
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Soak ham for a couple of hours in cold water (replace the water every hour) to remove any excess salt
  2. Poach the ham in the Coca-Cola adding some sliced oranges, cloves and peppercorns etc. to the liquid.
  3. After 60-90 mins depending on size remove the ham and remove the skin from the ham leaving approximately 1/4 inch of fat on the ham.
  4. Preheat oven to 180ºC
  5. Discard poaching liquid and score the ham into diamonds.
  6. Place cloves into the corner gaps between each diamond
  7. Place into the oven for 10mins uncovered to allow the scored fat to begin to render
  8. Sprinkle the ham liberally with black pepper.
  9. Cover with the marmalade (as it heats up it will cover the ham)
  10. Return to the oven for approximately 1 hour, basting in the marmalade reduction every 10 mins. During this time if you need extra liquid in the pan add a little pure orange juice to the ham / marmalade juices to enable the baste to continue.
  11. When cooked remove and let the ham rest 10-15 mins before slicing
