Baked Sugar-Cured Ham, Mother's Style

  • 6 very large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 pounds cooked ham, sliced
  • 3 apples
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1/2 cup strained honey
Boil the potatoes with the skins on for about 30 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Peel them while hot and mash through and through. Add pineapple juice and mix well. Butter a large baking dish, place a thin layer of mashed sweet potatoes in the bottom. Place a layer of ham on top of the potatoes and cover the ham with a layer of sliced fresh apples; delicately sprinkle with a little salt, dot with butter and a little honey. Repeat this method until all the potatoes, apple ham and honey have been used. The top layer should be sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with a little melted butter and bake in a oven heated to 350F for approximately an hour. Serves 6.
