    I soak mine in a pan of water over night in the refrigerator changing water a few times before baking it. It removes some of the salt.

    The last time I roasted ham, I poured a can of ginger ale over it first. The salty flavor was less pronounced and the ham flavor was enhanced. Very excellent!

    I just ususally rinse it before baking.

    I use Virginia's hams and they are salt cured. It depends on how old the ham is as to how long I soak it. Normally, I soak it for two days, covering it well with the water, in my laundry sink. I change the water often. If the ham you use is anything like Virginia's salt cured, after cooking it, the saltiness comes back some. By the way, Edward's Hams are the best, better than Smithfield.

    I forgot to add that I live in Virginia and am only 40 miles away from both Smithfield and town where Edward's Hams are located. :)
