How to carve your 100 per cent New Zealand ham, bone in.

Note: if you’ve already glazed your100% NZ ham, start at step two.

 
Step one
Place ham skin side up. Then run a small sharp knife
under the rind around the bottom (opposite to the
knuckle end/hock of leg) and each side of the ham to
about halfway up. Peel the rind back using your fingers
to ease the rind from the ham.
 
Step two
Run the tip of the knife around the bone, on the
underside of the ham.
Carve slices like you would a loaf of bread, cutting on a
slight angle down to the bone (rather than across).
 
Step threee
Run your knife lengthways along the bone to remove
slices.
Continue to slice towards the hock (knuckle end of the
leg).
 
Step four
Continue slicing down to the bone, working your way
around the ham until you reach about a third of the way
up. Remove the bone by making a few short cuts at the
joint.
 
Step five
To keep your ham fresh (if unglazed: fold rind back
over exposed surface) place in a ham bag and store in
the fridge.
