Put the gammon in a large pan with the apple juice and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to the boil on a high heat before cooking for an hour on a low heat.
After an hour, turn the gammon over. Cook for a further hour, and check that the meat is cooked – you can do this by putting a skewer through: if it easily passes right through the meat to the other side, then it is done.
In an oven preheated to 200C, cook the gammon for a further 10 minutes with all of the juices, in order to brown the meat.
The left over liquid can be used to cook cabbage to accompany the gammon – it gives the cabbage a great flavour, and means that nothing is wasted!
