Southern Baked Ham

When there is going to be company, baked ham is one of the nicest kinds

of meat that can be had. Take either a small end or half a ham, as

needed, and soak several hours in cold water. Wash well and put on in a

kettle with cold water to cover and boil slowly, allowing at least

twenty minutes to the pound. After boiling half an hour, remove

one-third the water, and fill up with fresh boiling water, and keep

covered until done. Then set aside and allow to cool in the liquor. When

cold, lift out, trim off the brown skin, cover the fat with brown sugar,

stick with whole cloves, and bake brown--about twenty or thirty minutes.

This is delicious either hot or cold.
