Sticky 5 Spice Gammon – Slimming World Recipe

Gammon is one of our favourite meats. I always get a piece bigger than we need because the kids love to have plenty of leftovers to snack on.

Another favourite flavour is 5 spice so I couldn’t wait to try bringing the two together. It was delicious 🙂

Ant did have to cook some without the five-spice, though, because Kaycee doesn’t like it (there’s always one!).

    I just made this exactly how the recipe said to and it’s still runny do I just leave it a bit to set?

      I find this happens with a few Slimming World recipes. If it doesn’t thicken in the time the recipe says, I carry on cooking it until the liquid has reduced properly. It sometimes takes double the time the recipe states.
      When I make this again, I’ll see how long it takes and change the recipe to reflect the true cooking time xx
