I'm happy that someone else likes a simple ham. This is the fastest most elegent dinner you can make.If I have company then I put the pineapple rings with the cherries in the middle on top of the ham. As far as the people that didn't like cloves....You don't eat them, you take them all off before cutting the ham. Remember to score your ham not dice like my sister-in-law did), but score the top before you put your brown sugar on any extras you want.
has anyone has made ham gravy? I haven't found anyone yet, but, love it when they try it at my house. It's a sweet gravy, but, delicious.
Take the ham out of the pan and keep the drippings on the bottom of the pan (if you added some water before cooking you'll have more gravy). Don't salt or pepper since a lot of hams can be very salty. Make your ROUX (flour and water mixture), and start adding it to your drippings until you get the consistency that you want. If it's still to salty then add more water (little at a time). I always add a little more brown sugar until I get the taste that I want (my sister adds the pineapple juce instead of the water...like I said it's a sweet gravy (I was raised on this gravy). Let your family or company add their own s&p as they want. If you like raisins, I put raisins in it in the begining so they cook and puff up. Please try it, remember you don't have to serve it since you didn't purchase any thing extra to make it. You might surprise yourself and your family (& company).
