Ham Recipe

I know...here we go again. I post this recipe way too often. But, it is so good, that if it reaches one person that has not seen it yet, it is worth boring you all again. I made a 16 pounder for my daughter's event.

I tried to get photos of the moon.

It was so dark that they came out like paintings.

By the cheapest bone in ham you can find. Seriously, buy a cheap ham. This will be the best ham you have ever had. Slice off most of the fat.

Once the fat is off, score the ham.

Just slice it at about 1 inch intervals across the ham and then 1 inch interval in the other direction.

Click on the pic so you can see it close up. Place it in a roasting pan and bake it at 300 degrees for a couple of hours.

After 2 hours, remove it from the oven and turn the heat up to 350 degrees.

Push a clove into the center of each diamond.

Mix 2 cups of marmalade, 2 cups of Dijon mustard (not you Christer!), and 1 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Return it to the oven for 1 1/2 hours.

The smell is out of this world.

Slice the ham thinly and place it on a platter and drizzle the remaining glaze over it. This ham is hard to stop eating. There is rarely an leftover.

And it freezes beautifully. My daughter will be serving this on my potato rolls!

Sorry, I wont post this again for at least 6 months!
