Sugar Crusted Smoked Picnic Ham
Piggly Wiggly sells a Smoked Picnic Ham, usually around Easter. If you can't find a local Piggly Wiggly any Smoked Picnic Ham will do.
Smoked picnic ham, (any size that will fit into a pot), note the weight for cooking time
1 cup molasses
3 Tablespoons whole cloves
3/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
Place ham in pot, cover with water, add molasses and whole cloves. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat and simmer. Cook for 1/2 hour per pound on low heat.
Make a paste of mustard and brown sugar while ham is cooking. The amount of sugar and mustard depends on the size of the ham.
Remove ham from water, trim off skin and fat, discard. Slightly score ham. Spread paste over ham. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting and serving.
