Unsmoked rolled bacon joints are a delicious alternative to a gammon joint. The bacon joint is from the loin of the animal and the gammon is from the hind leg of the animal.
It is so very tasty when cooked boiled in ginger ale in a pan then popped in the oven to roast to crisp up with cloves and brown sugar. Alternatively, it can be roasted in a tray surround by delicious seasonal vegetables to soak up the delicious flavour. An incredibly moreish cut of meat loved by all ages.
