Then make cuts along the natural lines on the ham’s surface and along the bone to remove sections of slices. Cut first along (A) and down each side parallel to the bone as far as desired. The top section of slices may then be removed. Then cut along (B) to remove the lower right section. To remove the final section, cut around the bone along line.
