What can you do to make a ham less salty?

Chef's answer
Soaking the ham overnight in cold water reduces the salty flavor of the ham. Keep the ham submerged in water and refrigerated for 12 to 24 hours. Change the water that you are using to soak the ham every three to four hours to reduce the saltiness even more.
