CBC Beer glazed gammon with cumin roasted sweet potatoes

Gammon has always been my favourite thing to see (and eat) on the Sunday roast table. It’s also a great cut to play with in terms of how, and in what you can cook it. I’m so excited about this recipe as the addition of the CBC Oktoberfest beer really does give it another dimension and lifts the sweet saltiness of the meat.
