    Put it in water and boil it. As soon as it boils change the water and bring it to the boil again, this brings out all the salt. You can then roast it or fully cook it by boiling it in Coca Cola and then roasting for the last hour with marmalade smeared all over.

    I would just roast it. Cook it in a covered roasting tin then about half an hour before its cooked take it out of the oven, score the top with a sharp knife in a criss cross pattern, a stanley knife is best, mix up a couple of spoons of honey and a couple spoons of nice wholegrain mustard and mix it together then pour over and brush into the ham then return to the oven uncovered and cook for remainder or the cooking time and it will be lovely and crispy on top with a beautiful flavouring.

    Yes I use the same method as DasArab - excellent results every time. The wife loves it.

    I don't get the whole "Stressing over the turkey thing" - this is much easier.

    On a separate note to the way ive suggested you can also remove the rind, the rind only though, leaving the white fat underneath. Same method though, score the fat in a criss cross fashion, but add cloves to the diamond in the fat, then the honey and mustard and cook for a further half hour.

    I must admit we are having Rib Roast this year, purely for a change.

    We're having the family round again this year for Xmas, the joys of being an ex chef lol...

    I will be roasting my ham smothered in English mustard & brown sugar, i don't bother boiling the salt out first as i quite like the taste

    Will also be roasting a turkey & a sirloin joint too
