Risotto with Butternut Squash, Corned Ham, and Cheddar cheese

RG cooked a corned ham.  This thing was huge, a whopping 20 pounds or so.  So what is a corned ham?  It's a hog leg, just like a regular ham, only it's not smoked, it corned.  Kind of like corned beef, but not as salty.  The result is a very mild and light ham.  It's really quite delicious. 

Since there are only two of us and ten times as much ham, we had to figure out what to do with it.  Risotto with butternut squash, ham, and cheese was just the ticket.  It's now one of our favorites.  It's an exercise in simplicity at it's best.
