  1. Prepare the Gammon Joint:

  • Remove the gammon joint from its packaging and pat dry with paper towels.

  • Place the gammon joint in a large bowl or on a plate.

  1. Season the Gammon Joint:

  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and paprika. Mix well to form a paste.

  • Rub the seasoning paste all over the gammon joint, ensuring it is evenly coated.


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (182°C). Preheating helps ensure even cooking from the start.

  • Place the seasoned gammon joint in the air fryer basket.

  • Air fry at 360°F (182°C) for 35-40 minutes, turning the joint halfway through cooking to ensure even roasting. If your gammon joint is larger, you may need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

  • Check for doneness by ensuring the internal temperature of the gammon joint reaches 160°F (71°C).
