Boiled Ham

  • Ham
  • Black pepper
  • Whole cloves
Soak the ham for about an hour in cold water and then rinse it clean through and through. Cut off the hardened surface from the base and butt of the ham. Put the ham in a pot with cold water and let it come to a moderate boil, keeping it steadily at this point. Allow it to cook for 20 minutes for every pound of ham. A ham weighing 12 pounds will require 4 hours to cook properly.

When the ham is to be served hot, peel off the skin. Place on a platter, the fat side up, and dot the surface with spots of black pepper. Stick in also some whole cloves.

If the ham is to be served cold, allow it to remain in the pot until the water in which it was cooked becomes cold. This makes the ham juicier. Serve it in the same manner as when served hot.
