Get a clean pillow case and make sure it is damp. Put the ham in that and it will keep for ages. Make sure you dampen the pillowcase every day though.
Not a fan of ham off the bone once it has been frozen. Dunno, i recon its not the same?

Was told something about vinegar from sil ?
This ham thing is confusing! But i really don't want to waste a 4.5kg leg of ham lol

I use water and a small amount of vinegar (a big splash in a container if water) to dampen the ham bag (or pillowcase lol)... I was told it helps keep the ham for longer

Make sure you keep the skin to lay back over the ham when you carve it. We keep the skin on, dampen the ham bag with water and vinegar and re rinse the ham bag every second day to keep it moist.

Roughly how long can you expect a ham to last if taken care of properly, ie skin on, damp bag etc ?
