This entry for our #XmasAutisticLifeHacks series covers one of the most important aspects of any Christmas: Food! For those among us who eat meat, making sure that it’s better than your average Sunday roast is a must.

One of the Leeds Autism AIM team has suggested how to prepare a gammon joint, making this often salty meat taste sweet. Here is their suggestion:

“Gammon splits opinions: There are those that love it and those that find it too salty.

“Try slow cooking the gammon in full-fat (cheap) cola in a slow cooker for six hours.

“It ends up super soft, not salty and delicious – everyone is happy!”
