Ham for packed lunch

I love ham in sandwiches, tortilla wraps, pasta salads, etc. The one you get at the deli counter is expensive that’s why they slice it really thin! You can get ham in tin. It is great for emergency but  I find the texture a little bit too squashy, good for making quiches, not sandwiches. So, my solution is make your own!

Try and buy British of course. They sell too many Danish products in the pork section… Buy a piece of gammon, smoked or unsmoked. It is easy to cook and tastes delicious. When cooked, try and slice thinnish slices although it is quite tricky and you will end up with little chunks. The thinner pieces will be used for sandwiches, the chunks for wraps and salads, the edge bits being a bit tougher will be great kept for pies or quiches. And of course, everything will be stored in the freezer, carefullly separated using greaseproof paper so you can take out as much as you want when you want it, usually the night before you need it.

Anyway, I went shopping yesterday and bought a large piece of gammon (half price it was too) that I am planning to cook today. So, I will let you know how I get on. Have a lovely Sunday.
