Hmm. That's interesting, GB. I would have assumed, too, that a salted ham would have quite a longer shelf life. I never really gave much thought to the fact that prosciutto, etc., have had all the moisture removed by the salt, and so gain their long shelf life.

I suppose smoked salmon is a good example of this. It's salted, but still moist, and MUST MUST MUST be refrigerated.

I guess I won't leave my ham out overnight. :)
