    72.5 minutes (1 hour and 12.5 minutes)

    Here's the math:

    850 / 500 = 1.7 (how many times more 850 is than 500)

    1.7 x 25 = 42.5 (ratio of minutes to grams)

    42.5 + 30 = 72.5 (plus 30 mins)

    Roughly 1 hour and 10 - 15 minutes should be about right.

    Aw please don't boil it, it'll just come out salty and fibrous! Pressure cook it in a suitable stock!

    It would not matter to me.  I would not  buy this ham, because the instructions to cook it are way too confusing.  What was the ham company thinking?? GEEZ

    Boiling time (850/500) times 25 and add 30 minutes = 72.5 minutes
