What You'll Need

What is the difference between bone-in ham and semi boneless ham? A semi boneless ham has had the hip bone (aitch) and tail bone removed, while leaving the thigh bone. This way, you get the flavor advantage of bone-in ham, but the ham is easier to carve. Bone-in ham tends to be more flavorful, and less prone to drying out in the oven, compared to boneless ham.
