So, I went a bit crazy and bought a country ham. . .

Maybe because my 15 year reunion at my alma mater is coming up (in a place known for its country hams), or maybe because I'm crazy, but I went ahead and ordered a whole (14-16 lbs) country ham from Scott Hams out of Kentucky. Actually, I ordered the "proscuitto style" ham, which has been aged longer than their typical hams.* So, now I have a country ham coming, and I have no idea what to do with it.

So, for those of you with experience with either country hams, proscuitto or jamon, how do you slice and/or serve your hams? What do you serve them with? I think I'm going to have to buy a ham knife, but do I need a ham stand?

*The cost per pound is ridiculously low. The ham, plus shipping, was $71, or about $5 per pound.
