German Ham from Nancy Brook


12 to 16 lb. tenderized ham
1 qt. apple cider
1 qt. Sprite or sparking water
1 pt. molasses
2-3 Tb. prepared mustard
1 C. dark brown sugar
whole cloves and powdered cloves

Wipe ham with damp cloth. Place in roaster. Pour over Sprite, cider and molasses. Cover and bake at 350 for 15 minutes per pound. Turn ham every hour. When tender remove from pan, cut fat into diamonds, stick with cloves. Sprinkle with powdered cloves, spread with mustard and brown sugar. Broil until sugar melts and bubbles.

(This is an old German recipe that my Relief Society president in Ivins, UT gave to me. She got it from an old German neighbor that she had many years ago. It is really a treat.)
