Recipe from: Food That Made New England Famous, by Mrs. Walter K. Hall, Lynnfield Ctr., MA. She wrote: "My Grandaires lived on the water front overlooking Lynn Swampscott Bay, 1857, where 'hard times and uninvited guests ultimately forced them to commercialize their "elegant table" - thereby establishing a fore runner of residential dinning rooms on the North Shore . My proudest possession is the blue platter on which they served "Smothered Ham"
