Ham Loaf Recipe

Here’s a ham loaf which you will be proud of and your company will enjoy. Serves eight to ten.
1-1/4 cups ground ham
1-1/2 lbs. leans fresh pork, ground
4 oz. bacon fat, ground
1 green pepper, ground
1 medium onion, ground
1 cup soft bread crumbs
3 eggs, beaten
1 t. ground cloves
1 t. thyme
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1 t. tarragon
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 T. sweet vermouth

Grind all the meats and vegetables and mix them well. Add the bread crumbs, beaten eggs and seasonings. When well-blended together, add the milk and mix.

Grease a good-sized loaf pan and pack the brown sugar on the sides and bottom, then put in the meat mixture. Set the pan in a pan of hot water and bake at 300 degrees for 1-1/2 hours. When the loaf is done, turn it upside-down on a platter. Put the vermouth in the pan and let it boil up over medium heat, scraping the pan, and pour over the loaf. Serve with your favorite mustard or mustard sauce.
