    Do they mean the fatty stuff? I don't think of ham having a skin, unless I get a butt or shank portion with all that fat.....I would ask the same question!

    Well I assumed a knife would be used, I just can't imagine doing it without losing half the ham and making a mess of it. I was hoping there might be a trick to it.

    I don't know what they mean. It just says to remove the skin.

    The recipe I am refering to is Baked Ham with Cumberland Sauce from The Best of TOH The 1st Ten Years ( page 264). After you remove the skin, you are supposed to score it, then rub mustard etc. into the fatty portion.If the fatty portion is still there, what skin are they talking about?

    The 'skin' they're referring to is simply that dark, tough outer layer of the ham. Some people remove it, some don't. I usually don't until AFTER the ham is baked because it holds in moisture. I've found that removing the skin before baking produces drier meat.
