30 min per lb + 30 mins is my cooking time. I also steep it in cold water overnight before cooking.

Can I just give a tip for the nicest boiled ham EVER - boil it in cider - trust me
Got that from my sister-in-law a few years ago, wouldn't do it any other way now.

I usually do it for 25mins lb + 25 mins - mmmmmmmmmm honest

I'm gonna try the cider and apple juice trick...sounds yum..

Just wondering, when you all say boil it for x amount of time, do you mean pour cider into a big pot with ham and bring to the boil then simmer for 1.5 hours?
Do you simmer it or keep it on a low boil?

First timer here and I really wanna make it right!
