I'd give it a try.

Aren't we always trying to figure out how they used to do it?

No, but only because I don't like country ham. Too salty for me. But I'd bet it's not dangerous to eat.

I've probably got one in the back of the refrigerator!

I would try it.

In the days when curing hams, etc was done for preservation purposes, the meat spent much longer in the brine or dry salting mix and these were much stronger than is used today so the finished ham would taste much saltier, even after soaking and cooking, than we have a palette for these days. We probably wouldn't enjoy it much.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
