  1. PLACE ham in a large container. Add water to cover, and soak 24 hours. Drain. Scrub ham 3 to 4 times in cold water with a stiff brush, and rinse well.
  2. PLACE ham, fat side up, in a large roasting pan. Pour vinegar over ham; sprinkle with cloves. Cover with lid or aluminum foil.
  3. BAKE at 325 degrees for 4 hours or until meat thermometer registers 140 degrees. Remove from oven, and cool slightly. Slice ham, and serve with hot biscuits.
  4. QUICK BUTTERMILK BISCUITS: CUT 1/2 cup butter into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly; add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. TURN dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. ROLL dough to 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. BAKE at 425 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes. Brush biscuits with melted butter.

The biscuits were quick to make and tasted good. They didn't rise as much as I'd like and weren't very flaky, but for quick biscuits that taste good this is a good recipe.
