  1. The house smells of cloves, honey, and brown sugar. I am letting it rest, but want to take a big old bite out of it. Ummm, ham sandwiches.

    sounds swell any chance of a pic?
     
  3. No, I wasn't thinking, I was hungry. But it was rather simple. Twenty minute per pound, covered in foil. Then, for the last half hour orso, I made a glaze of brown sugar, honey, and cloves. It smelled, and tasted, heavenly.

  10. Went to mom's yesterday and had ham. No one else wanted the ham, so I gladly brought home a hunk that was a few pounds.

    I love me some ham leftovers.

    Fried ham and eggs, ham sandwiches...you get the idea.
     
  11. I'm a ham lover and have converted a few folks with Alton Brown's city ham recipe. The crust/glaze is absolutely awesome. I am now the designated Christmas cook between my ham success and my homemade applesauce. My panettone, not such a hit.
     
  12. I don't get designated, I kick people out of their kitchens.

    Ham is great but unless you walk out with the bone, its not a victory! ;)
     
  13.  
  14. Make split pea and ham soup in a crock pot with bacon. I LOVE left over ham!
     
  15. You can get a little more flavor in the ham if you stab the whole clove into the top before putting it in the oven. I always glaze the ham at the beginning and spoon the drippings over as it cooks.
     
  16. Yesterday I cooked a spiral sliced ham.I used 1 1/2 cups ginger ale,3 tsp ginger paste, 1 cup orange marmalade mixed together ,one half of the mix was used as a baste.The other half I mixed with the pkg of glaze that came with the ham.That was placed in a pan in the oven and allowed to cook down.The last 30 minutes of the cook time the cooked down mix was then poured over the ham.It was great.
