So no feedback on boiling the ham first? Why and what kind of ham would one boil?
TIA

Boiling would probably have gotten rid of any issues the ham may have had. I've never boiled a ham either, unless it was in soup.

Wendy, your ham should be fine. In the days of yore, folks left out smoked/cured meats all the time since there was no refrigeration.

I've seen packages of boiled ham alongside the presliced/deli honey roasted, baked, etc. I suspect it removes a lot of the salt?

Some people boil fresh, uncured ham rather than salt and smoke it. I'm pretty sure smoking meat is not a common cooking method in England.
