    AuntWoofieWoof's Note:

    To me, ham has too much salt. I didn't get it very often because of that. After doing a search on the internet to see if there was a way to take some of the salt out of a ham, I found a suggestion on the Morton Salt site. I have done this method three times since finding their suggestion. This method really does work. It doesn't take all of the salt out of a ham, but it takes a lot of it out. It makes the ham taste much better. It even works on Spiral Cut hams. This is for cut hams. I don't know if this will work on a whole ham. This needs to be done 24 hours before cooking the ham. Cooking time is the time it takes to soak the ham. I had to put in specific sizes of ingredients so I put the size/amount as a suggestion. You might need more water, depending on the size of ham and pot you are using.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    ham

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Take the wrapper off of the ham.
    2. 2
      Place the ham, cut side down, in a large pan or stew pot, large enough so that the ham doesn't stick out of the pot too much.
    3. 3
      Fill the pan with cold water so that 3/4 of the ham is under the water.
    4. 4
      Place the pot in the refrigerator.
    5. 5
      After 12 hours take the ham out of the refrigerator and drain all of the water out. Follow steps 2 to 4 again.
    6. 6
      After the second 12 hours (making it a total of 24 hours), take the pan out of the refrigerator and drain the water.
    7. 7
      Remove the ham from the pan, rinse it, and put it in the pan or crock pot in which you are going to cook it.
    8. 8
      Cook it any way you want to.
    9. 9
      I usualy put mine in the crock pot and let it cook until it is done.
    10. 10
      With a spiral cut ham, it only needs a couple of hours in the crockpot for it to get hot.
