    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    For those of you that don't know, a country ham is cured with salt. it needs no refrigeration until after all the cooking is done, but you have to cook it a certain way or the whole ham will be ruined. It takes a little time, but it’s sure worth it. There is nothing like a country ham. I like to slice it and eat it on biscuits. PLEASE FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO THE TEE--THE SALT MUST BE EXTRATED FROM THE MEAT OR IT WILL TASTE HORRIBLE.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Scrub ham thoroughly with a stiff brush.
    2. 2
      Place ham in large pot or pan--even a cooler will work. Cover it completely with water and allow to soak for 24 hours, (discard water).
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 325°F.
    4. 4
      Put ham in large roaster fat side up and again cover completely with water. place in oven on lowest shelf and bake for 2 hours. Turn ham to other side and cook another 2 hours. It takes 4 to 41/2 hours in all or 15 to 18 minutes per pound for a good tender ham.
    5. 5
      Remove ham from oven, but leave in water overnight (do NOT refrigerate).
    6. 6
      The next day preheat oven to 425°F.
    7. 7
      Remove and discard ham skin. Sprinkle fat with ground cloves.
    8. 8
      Combine sugar with enough vinegar to make a paste and brush on ham. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes; let rest for 1 hour out of the oven, then slice and serve.
