Step One:

Place the ham on a cutting board or ham stand (if you have one)


Step Two:

To carve the ham nicely you will need to start by making a slice off the end of the ham.


Step 3:

Use the first cut as a guide, cut straught down the ham at 3-5mm intervals

Once you reach the hock bone, cut around the bone at 45 degree angles to maximise the number of slices
