Thanks for asking, jKath, I don't know what gammon is, either. It is really fun to see these pictures - we all live in such different parts of the world. Scotland is really beautiful. I did live in England for three years (30+ years ago), so you'd think I'd know what gammon is......

Saludos, Karen

I got a book on British Isles cookery a few years ago and had to look it up ... here is an explanation of gammon.

Thanks, Michael - that's a good explanation of gammon; I thought it was a word with an international flavour - obviously not. :)
