Canned hams are one of the best buys on your grocer’s shelf. This recipe will easily serve six or seven people and still leave quite a bit for weekday snacks or Dad’s brown bag.
4 lb. canned ham
Gelatin from canned ham
2 T. butter or margarine
2 T. honey
1/2 t. each of ground cloves, mustard powder and cinnamon
Step 1. Melt the gelatin reserved from the ham. Add water as needed to make 3/4 cup liquid. Add remaining ingredients.
Step 2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place ham in uncovered roasting pan and place in oven. After 30 minutes have passed, baste the ham every 10 to 12 minutes with the basting sauce. After about a total of 75 minutes in the oven the ham will be ready to serve. Serve with scalloped potatoes and honey carrot coins.
