- Put the boned ham in a crock, previously cleaned with boiling water, and cover with the brine.

- Remove the meat from the crock, and tie it into as even a shape as possible.

- Wrap it in clean muslin.

- Weigh it.

- Put it in a big pan, and cover with cold water, and bring slowly to the boil.

- Simmer it for 10 minutes, then drain off the water, and start again with more cold water.

- Bring it slowly to the boil again, then reduce the heat so the water just ripples.

- Cook it at this speed for 40 minutes per kilo, plus an extra 20 minutes - from the start of simmering.

- Allow it to cool in its liquid - still wrapped - overnight, under a weight adjusted to give the ham a good shape.
