Default Ham / turkey like rubber??

Merry Crimbo to one and all!! Quick question though, where can you get a decent bit of ham and turkey that isn't like rubber?? Last Crimbo we bought a large turkey breast and you could've played basketball with it... ....this Crimbo we bought a large bit of ham and it's the same consistency?!?! Help please?? I'm fed up with meat that makes your jaws bounce apart!!

Happy New Year to one and all!
Andy

I went to a chinese restaurant and had some duck, it was awful..

I said to the chef your duck is rubbery.

He said:

FANKU MATE !

No I'm not...the meat has that consistency/texture before I've cooked it and it doesn't go away with cooking (nor does it get any worse). Thanks for the vote of confidence re: my cooking skills!

Ok - I got mine from Woolies but it was definitely a gelatinous sort of consistency and not like the ham I'd had in the UK where it used to flake off when you cut it??

the ham here is vile, just learnt to live without it I did try to find a gammon joint to cook myself before xmas but they looked at me like i'd got 2 heads ..which is quite ironic in itself.
