    Gravy/sauce to go with gammon 12th Sep 06 at 10:50 AM
    I've got some gammon to boil tonight, and sweetcorn and new potatoes to go with it.
    Has anyone got any idea about a gravy or sauce I could make to go with it? Normally we would have cheese sauce, but we had macaroni cheese last night ....

    I would do a bread sauce or onion sauce with gammon because it's so salty. Not very os I know, but dare I say a packet mix from Morrisons for about 39p?

    we don't usally have any sauce. i will put a bit of butter on the sweetcorn and pot's and this is enough. but sometimes my hubby like a bit of mayo with his gammon.

    Sauce with gammon
    I cooked a gammon joint yesterday in the slow cooker, and was going to have it tonight with wedges and baked beans.

    However, have been down to the allotment and pulled some potatoes so have changed dinner to gammon, potatoes and cabbage. I will have to do a sauce, but not sure what. Not sure about gravy, and think I have heard somewhere about gammon and parsley sauce, or have I imagined it :confused:

    Anyone got any suggestions - I threw away the stock off the joint, I know, I'm stupid :

    Yes, parsley sauce is a traditional accompaniment to gammon.

    Hi charlies_mum,

    I always make cheese sauce with gammon and cabbage.

    There's an older thread that should give you some more ideas so I've merged your thread with it to keep all the suggestions together.

    Thanks Pink, cheese or parsley sauce sound good - don't know why, but I just can't imagine gravy with gammon

    Posting pics is a bit beyond me unfortunately It's just that anytime I hear the word parsley I think of that bit in the film. In fact OH and I speak to each other in 'film' quite a lot of the time and Pirates is a good source of useful phrases -which is nice

    Too late for tonight's meal but maybe Cumberland sauce would have been nice.

    Parsley sauce is the traditional accompaniment.

    Too late now, but I cook gammon in apple juice, which when slightly thickened with cornflour makes a delicious sauce/gravy. Any stock left is a great base for bacon and lentil soup.

    I do it in the juice from a tin of unsweetened apricots and then make a sauce with the juices using, celery, onion, sherry. Then you heat the apricots to eat with it. It's from a great book called Budget Gourmet by Geraldine Holt - although I think it's out of print now
