Diet Cola Ham Joint

Only those who have never tried and tasted this would raise an eyebrow. Try it, you won’t regret it and will definitely be back to cook it again.


  • 1-1.5kg Unsmoked Gammon Joint (without skin)
  • 2 ltr Diet Cola
  • 1 Onion (peeled and cut in half)


  1. Put the gammon joint into a deep pan, add the onion and completely cover in the diet cola.
  2. Bring to the boil and then reduce heat to a gentle simmer, place the lid lightly on top and leave to simmer for approximately 2hrs.
  3. Once the ham is cooked, remove from the pan onto a plate and allow to stand whilst you prepare your accompanying ingredients.

I served mine carved on a plate with Slimming World Style sweet potato chips, roasted on-the-vine tomatoes, a fried egg and a grilled flat mushroom. It could also be left to fully cool and then sliced and served with salad.
