1. Place the gammon joint in the Instant Pot’s inner pot, add 2 litres of water, 5 black peppercorns, 1 bay leaf, 3 garlic cloves. Press the “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” button, set 18 minutes with the – and + buttons. Do a natural release at the end (i.e. let the float valve pop back down on its own, you can also release the rest of the steam after 15 minutes). Remove the gammon and reserve. Discard the garlic, bay leaf and peppercorns. Do not drain the stock, leave it in the inner pot, you’ll need it for the soup.
