     ^^^^^^   gammon in the slow cooker with cola? next time I am trying it with ginger beer. You could finish it off in the oven to get a crispy glazed skin
    probably in the pressure cooker tomorrow (i want to soak it tonight to get some of the salt out). but can't do it in cola unfortunately.

    1 no cola in the house and i dont want to buy any :D and 2 i want to use some of the stock for the soup. 

    i'm thinking if i take the water from the pressure cooker and add the veg scraps ive got in the freezer then i can leave it overnight tomorrow night in the slow cooker. then drain check for saltiness and dilute to use for stock when i make the soup on monday. 

    and yes to glazing. we like mustard and brown sugar in this house (not sure what other people use to glaze?)
    Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you. Anne Lamott

    It's amazing how those with a can-do attitude and willingness to 'pitch in and work' get all the luck, isn't it?

    Please consider buying some pet food and giving it to your local food bank collection or animal charity. Animals aren't to blame for the cost of living crisis.
