  • 2-4 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • Directions

    Heat oven to 300°. Peel and slice garlic. Using the tip of a paring knife, cut slits in ham roast. Insert garlic slices into slits. Stir together molasses and pepper in small bowl. Spread molasses mixture over ham. Wrap ham with heavy-duty foil. Place foil-wrapped ham in roasting pan. Roast for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until internal temperature as measured with a meat thermometer is 140° (about 15-18 minutes per pound). Serve warm or refrigerate until completely chilled. Slice for sandwiches or cube for salads or main dishes. Serves 10 to 14.
