  • Soak a ham bag, pillowcase or a tea towel in 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of flat lemonade
  • Wring out excess water and place ham in the ham bag, pillowcase or wrap in a tea towel. Store in coolest part of the fridge
  • Re-soak bag in solution every few days or when ham bag dries out.

Freeze it – cover it loosely with baking paper (not plastic wrap, as this makes the ham deteriorate more quickly), then with foil. Ham can be frozen like this for two weeks
