  • Try a Butcher.

  • Um... ham is processed pork.

    If you want to make your own ham (like salt cure), you need to buy a pork shoulder.

    If you want lower-additive or 'natural' ham, first you have to know that it's going to be grey, not pink. And it's going to have a much milder flavour than what most people are used to --it's nowhere near as sweet, for one thing.

    You could look for Smithfield ham --it's available whole (you need to boil it and soak it for days to get the salt off so it's edible) or prepared and ready to eat sliced.
