Last night I cooked a brown sugar glazed ham (bone still in) and I must add, it was probably the best ham I've ever had the pleasure of eating!
Normally I would have studed the entire ham with whole cloves. But this time I got lazy and just threw a handful of cloves into the pan, two bay leaves and filled the pan about 1/4 full with water. I put the ham on a rack so that it was suspended into the water but not sitting on the bottom of the roasting pan. I packed brown sugar onto the top of the bone ... 2 hours in the oven, and WOW!!!
So yummy that I saved all the pan drippings for the next day - I put the broth into a ziplock bag in the fridge so any fat would float to the top and when I cut the corner off the bottom of the bag to release the liquid into my crockpot all the fat stayed in the bag!!
Well now in the crockpot I have a combination of:
Nothing better than having a wonderful meal one night and a terrific soup the next huh?
- Ham stock
- White Beans
- Chopped ham
