“I recommend using a medium gammon for this cooking method, or a bone-in cooked Woolworths gammon and glaze.” – Abigail Donnelly


  • 1 kg gammon, at room temperature
  • For the glaze, mix:
  • 3 T tamarind paste or fresh tamarind
  • 6 T treacle sugar
  • 4 T golden syrup
  • For the pickled nectarines:
  • 10 nectarines, ripe
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 cups cranberry juice
  • 6 black peppercorns
  • 1 bouquet garni

Cooking Instructions

1. To make the gammon, line the air-fryer basket with 2 layers of foil, enough to overlap the sides of the basket and cover the gammon.

2. Add the gammon and cover in the foil. Air-fry at 170°C for 20 minutes. Peel back the foil and spoon over the glaze. Air-fry for a further 25 minutes.

3. Remove the gammon and the juices and rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

4. To make the pickled nectarines, cut a small cross into the base of the fruit. Place in a large pan with the remaining ingredients. Place a sheet of greaseproof paper directly onto the fruit and poach for 10 minutes.

5. Spoon the nectarines onto a plate and carefully peel. Simmer the liquid for 30 minutes until reduced and syrupy. Cool and add the nectarines.

6. Serve the gammon with the pickled nectarines.
