To Boil a Ham

Soak a ham for one hour and clean with a brush. Put it in a kettle
with plenty of cold water and after it boils cook seven hours, skim
well and always replenish with boiling water. After it has boiled
three hours add half a handful of whole cloves and at the end of five
hours add one and a half pints of vinegar. After boiling, skin
the ham, sprinkle it with crumbs, stick with cloves and roast in a
moderate oven, thirty minutes, basting with a liquor of half vinegar
and half water.
