The Christmas Ham


Precooked, tenderized ham
1 cup of dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
2 tablespoons of brandy
teaspoons of ground cloves
teaspoon of ground cinnamon
teaspoon of ground ginger

Christmas Ham Mustard Sauce:-
cup of mayonnaise
cup of sour cream
3 tablespoons of brown mustard


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place ham fat side up, in an open roasting pan and roast until brown and tender, about ½ hour longer than the package calls for. Remove ham from oven and increase oven temperature to 425 degrees.

Cut the skin off ham, leaving ½ inch of fat. Score the fat with a sharp knife in diagonal lines, running in opposite directions to make diamond pattern. Combine brandy, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, sugar and flour and rub well over ham.

Return to oven, roast for 20 minutes more. With wooden toothpicks, attach to top and side a small bunch of grapes. Serve with mustard sauce.
