Estimated values based on one serving size.
- Place the gammon joint in a large pot and add the onions and pineapple juice. Bring to a boil over high heat.
- Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 70 minutes. (Gammon joints need to cook for 40 minutes per kilo (2 ¼ lbs), so if you are using a smaller or large gammon joint, adjust the cooking time accordingly.)
- Once cooked, carefully remove the gammon joint from the pan and place on a baking sheet to cool slightly.
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Make the glaze: in a small pan over a medium heat, combine the Dijon mustard, pineapple juice, and maple syrup and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes, or until slightly reduced and glossy.
- Carefully remove the skin from the gammon joint, using a small paring knife to help ease the fat away from the skin. Be sure to leave a small layer of fat on top of the gammon.
- Score the fat in a diamond pattern and push a clove into each cross section.
- Liberally brush the gammon joint with the glaze, making sure to reserve at least half of the glaze.
- Roast the gammon joint for 40 minutes, glazing again halfway through.
- Carve and serve.
