Yield: Servings are based on the size of the ham. Allow 1/4 to 1/2 pound per person, (portion sizes may very depending on the size of the persons involved, degree of hunger, and the number of side dishes).
Many butchers in other parts of the United States call fresh ham a "green ham." Just make sure you ask for un-smoked or unprocessed ham with the skin still on. That's the most important part - you need the skin and the layer of fat underneath.
