I do love to cook gammon/ham at home – I just think there is something very satisfying about the process, and if not being eaten straight away, it’s nice to have it in the fridge to cut at for butties, salads, or to enjoy with egg and chips etc! It’s also far more cost effective than buying ready cooked meat. I tend to keep the ham for up to 3 days in the fridge but if I’m not going to use it within this time, I just slice the meat (or cube it as it’s great to go in fried rice dishes), wrap in foil, then in a freezer bag and pop into the freezer to use at a later date.
Proudly introducing my ‘magic mallow crispy cakes’…. a truly magnificent indulgent gluten free treat for kids of all ages! The idea for these rather jolly – if not crazy – looking chocolate crispy cakes came from something my mum would make for our birthday parties and family celebrations when we were younger.
