    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 100 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 50 minutes 60 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 4 with leftovers


    • 1.15kg (approx) Waitrose Unsmoked English Gammon Joint
    • 4 large carrots, peeled and halved lengthways
    • 500g pack Waitrose Baby New Potatoes
    • 1 bunch fresh beetroot, trimmed and scrubbed, halved if large
    • 15g pack fresh rosemary
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 tbsp Waitrose Spanish Lavender Honey
    • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Pat the gammon dry with kitchen paper. Using the tip of a sharp knife, make deep slashes across the skin then place in a roasting tin.
    2. Arrange the carrots, potatoes and beetroot around the gammon. Tuck in the rosemary sprigs and drizzle the vegetables with the olive oil.
    3. Roast the gammon and vegetables in the oven for 1 hour. Mix the honey and mustard, and brush over the gammon. Return to the oven and roast for a further 40 minutes, basting the gammon once with the honey and mustard.
    4. Take the roasting dish out of the oven and transfer the gammon to a board. Cover in foil, and allow to stand for 10 minutes before carving. Slice the joint thinly and serve with the vegetables.
