Directions:
If the ham comes with the skin still attached, remove most of it with a sharp knife, leaving a layer of fat and collar of skin around the shank bone. Trim the fat, leaving a layer about 1/3 inch thick, and score the layer remaining into diamonds. Bake the ham on a rack in a rotating pan in a preheated 350 F. oven for 55 minutes.

GLAZE:
In a blender, blend together the ginger, the brown sugar, and the rum, spoon the glaze over the ham, spreading it, and bake the ham for 30-35 minutes more, or until the glaze is brown and bubbly. Transfer the ham to a platter, garnish the platter with the parsley, and let the ham stand for 15 minutes before carving.
