  • Refill pot with water until ham is covered.

  • e.g.: 6lbs @ 20mins per lb = 2hrs,     11lbs = 3hrs 40mins
  • Keep an eye on water so that is doesn’t boil off.
  • Remove ham from Pot and place onto a dish.
  • With a scissors, carefully cut off netting around the ham. The skin around the ham should come off with this netting. If not, just pull off skin.
  • Place the ham onto a roasting dish.

  • Heat your oven to 180C and place uncovered ham in for 20-30mins. approximately.
  • Enjoy!
