Tie a couple of pieces of kitchen string around the gammon to hold it together, then put it in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then discard the water. Refill the pan with the cider, apple juice and 120ml water, topping up with enough cold water to ensure the gammon is fully submerged. Add the bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook for 1 hr, topping up the water if needed to keep the joint covered.
Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a large pan of boiling water for 15-20 mins or until tender. Drain well and steam-dry in the colander for 5 mins. Transfer the potatoes to a board and use a potato masher to break the skins and flatten. Preheat the oven to gas 8, 230°C, fan 210°C.
Heat the oil in a large roasting tin in the oven for 5 mins. Add the potatoes, turning in the hot oil, then spread them out evenly. Season with salt, add the thyme and roast for 25-30 mins until crisp and golden, turning over halfway.
Transfer the gammon to a board (discard the cooking liquid). Remove the string, then carefully cut away the skin, leaving an even layer of fat. Score in a diamond pattern and stud with the cloves. Mix the mustard and sugar together, then brush all over the fat. Place the gammon, fat-side up, in a small roasting tin. Bake for 20 mins or until glazed and caramelised.
Discard the cloves, then reserve 250g ham and 160g potatoes for this pasta bake. Serve slices of the gammon with the potatoes and coleslaw, if you like.
Tip: To make your own coleslaw, thinly slice ¼ red cabbage, 1 red onion, 1 celery stick and 1 cored red apple. Toss together in a large bowl with 1 shredded carrot. Mix 50g mayonnaise, 50g natural yogurt and 1 tsp Dijon mustard with 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley; season and toss with the veg to coat.
