I want to try a fresh ham for Christmas and am looking at British recipes calling for simmering a 5-6 pound "gammon" with aromatics for 2-1/2 to 3 hours, cutting away the skin and a little of the fat, then baking (440 degree) with glaze for 15 min ("until the glazed fat is burnished"). I have two questions 1) is 5 to 6 pounds enough for 7-8 people? 2) is 15 min enough time? Thanks for your help - this will be my first fresh ham...
