I have a whole ham,roughly 16 pounds, and wonder how to cook or serve this to lessen the saltiness ? I want to serve it warm . Can it be baked without making it saltier ? My instinct is to simmer/bake it slowly and get the salt out ,while also imparting some moisture.Please offer any whole smoked ham suggestions as I do not want to ruin this beauty...many thanks...ch
