Marinated ham (spanish-style)

Yield: 30 servings

Measure Ingredient
15 pounds Fresh, uncured ham
\N \N Salt
4 cloves Garlic; 3 cut in slivers, 1 minced
1 cup Fresh lemon juice
1 cup Fresh lime juice

Prepare ham the night before by trimming away some of the excess fat, but leave as much skin as possible. Salt the meat to taste; cut small slashes into the ham and wedge in the slivers of garlic. Mix a marinade of minced garlic, lemon and lime juice. Pour over meat, cover tightly with foil, and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to cook, heat the oven to 300F. Roast the meat about three hours, basting evry half hour. Bring the center of the ham to 165F degrees (use a meat thermometer to check temperature). Just before removing the ham from the oven, raise the heat to crisp the skin.
