Yes, this is the ham, 'before cooking.' We did all the 'decorating thing' and then cooked if for a few hours with a wonderful glaze. Oh---so good and heaps over for the next' year!" lol I shall freeze some in 'snap bags' (thanks for the heads up, Doug!) so that I can use it in soups and whatever. I just wish that everyone could have a nice ham like this or a turkey. In a world that was more caring--they could!
