I have been here 4 Christmases (almost!) and I still don't quite "get" why ham seems to be different here. So please can I have a bit of help with understanding why when you buy ham here, it is always pre-cooked?
I have never bought it (though I've done ham in the UK different ways before coming here). However, have just been given a leg ham and now need to do something with it for Christmas. :)
So please can someone tell me a not too complicated (cos I don't have time!) way of cooking (re-cooking?!) this thing, and also because it is already cooked once, then you do it again yourself, whether it then has to remain cold or whether it can get heated up again if I cook with the leftovers. And how long you would reckon it is ok to keep it once I have "cooked" it. Do you have to keep it wrapped in cotton? It suggests that on the packaging.
So, I guess, a gentle idiot's guide that gives me credit for someone who can actually cook, but who doesn't understand Australian ham practices (!!!) would be appreciated!!
