Is it a fresh ham or a smoked-type? I am unfamiliar with that term. When buying ham, I usually follow the package directions.

Okay - what exactly is "3 X 475 grams joints"?? Are we talking about beef, pork, lamb, what? There's a big difference.

That should have read: 3x 475 gram gammon joints. That's 3 pieces of ham about a pound apiece.

Flower: If you're cooking them in the oven, the time is the same for three as it is for one.

3 pieces of meat, each roughly 1lb. Gammon is some kind of ham.

For those who (like me) found "gammon" to be a new food term, the following might be of interest.

Hi Flower and everyone,
I'm new to the forum so here goes....day job is teaching Home Economics
Andy M is right , if using the oven the 3 pieces will cook for roughly the same time although I would perhaps allow 1 hour and keep a check on the colour in the last 15mins. Gammon is beautiful if brushed with honey or soft brown sugar.
Good luck with your meal and enjoy.
