This recipe comes from an old Canadian insurance company recipe book (???) from the fifties. Everybody loves this recipe, especially those who don't like pineapples.
- 1 ham (3 - 5 lbs, toupie, etc.)
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cloves
- 1⁄2 cup prepared mustard
- Boil the ham for 1/2 hour per lb.
- Make sure the water covers at least 3/4 of the height of the ham.
- After it is properly boiled, lay the meat in an appropriate roaster.
- Cut some grooves along the top of the ham and then pour the sauce mixture on.
- Put in the oven for 1/2 hour at 375 F, uncovered.
I made this for my work's Xmas potluck in 2007 and everyone thought it was delicious! A great change from the old pineapples and cherries, to which I am not partial. I even had people ask for some to take home! Two thumbs up!
People will be attracted to the aroma while it's baking. My husband loved this recipe.
I did not have to boil my ham as it came hickory smoked semi-cooked and pre-sliced. I also didn't have ground cloves, so I just stuck about 20-30 whole cloves around the ham inbetween each of the slices. I made the brown sugar and mustard sauce to pour over the top and then cooked it for 2 hours at 350 when it fell off the bone. Great smell and wonderful flavor. Thanks!
