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.
