    About this recipe: A never-fail juicy ham recipe that is a family favourite. Frequent basting during the cooking time is key to a delicious result. We can't help taking several tester bites while waiting for the rest of the dinner to be ready. Makes great leftovers for sandwiches.

    • 340ml beer
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 1 (3.5kg) bone-in smoked gammon
