Traditionally thousands upon thousands of people buy a ham for Christmas. It has become as normal a piece of festive fare as the English Christmas pudding. It is boiled in clothes kettles, kerosene cans, or in the baby’s bath. Apart from this annual “boil up” there are few roasts cooked in this manner. Because of this I have selected the ham as a “basic” in order to suggest a rather unusual way of approaching the problem.
