If it is like the one pictured, slice it thin and place it atop a slice of buttered bread. Goes well with tomato.

If you are feeling adventurous, the left over pieces can be cooked in a Bigos style recipe.

I'd wager this ham chunked up would go well stewed in a pot of cabbage. In America there is a stereotype that corned beef and cabbage is the quintessential Irish dish around St Patrick's Day. It is also said that Irishmen greet each with : "Top o' the morning to ya!"

But back to your ham -- after removing the core, cut a small to medium head of cabbge into chunks, place in pot, scald with boiling water to cover and cook about 15 minutes. Drain. Add the ham, a bay leaf, some pepper and marjoram, mix and simmer under cover another 30 minutes or so. Serve with boiled potatoes. Other seasoning could include fresh chopped dill or and/or caway seeds.
