This was my first purchse of a complete shoulder, having previously bought ready sliced ham from Ibergour. I had not realized how much waste there is in a shoulder. I have cut off huge chunks of skin and fat. I started at the thin side and then when that ran into bone I turned the shoulder and started on the thicker side. I am now down about half way but there is only a thin 3 or 4cm wide strip of ham to cut. Maybe a leg would have more meat on it.
The flavour is superb. Sweet and just a little chewy but delicious. I keep it in the kitchen at room temperature. I might go back to prepacked ham though as I have only a small kitchen.
