Note That If A ham Has Been Salted For As Long As A Month

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)
The original source can be found at David Friedman's website

Note that if a ham has been salted for as long as a month, it is appropriate to put it to soak the evening before in cold water, and the next day to scrape it and wash it in hot water before cooking it, or cook it first in water and wine, and throw out this first cooking-liquid, and then cook it in another water.
