Put the gammon, vegetables, bay leaves, peppercorns and fruit juice drink in a large pan.
Cover with water, put the lid on and bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 mins per 450g of gammon.
During cooking, top up the water and skim the surface if necessary.
Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/ Gas 5. Drain the gammon, discarding the liquid and veg and cool slightly.
Using a sharp knife, gently cut the ride away from the joint, leaving an even layer of fat around the meat.
Put the jam and rum in a small pan and warm gently, stirring together. Brush all over the gammon joint.
Put the gammon on a baking tray lined with foil, then roast in the over for 20-30 mins until the glaze is set and bubbling. Allow to rest for 10 mins before carving. Eat hot or cold.
