How to Cut Your Christmas Ham


Step 1
Place ham skin side up.
Then run a small sharp knife under the rind around the bottom (opposite end to hock) and each side of the ham to about halfway up. Peel the rind back.

Step 2
Run the tip of the knife around the bone, on the underside of the ham. Begin to slice on a slight angle down to the bone.

Step 3
Run your knife length ways along the bone to remove slices. Continue to slice towards the hock.

Step 4
Continue slicing down to the bone, working your way around the ham until you reach about a third of the way up. Remove the bone by making a few short cuts at the joint.

Step 5
To keep your ham fresh, fold rind back over exposed surface, place in a Ham Bag and store in the fridge.
