This recipe was introduced to me by my best friend, who's mother showed her how to make it.I have never been a fan of ham but after having this ham I was hooked. As the blanket hardens around the ham it traps all of the juices inside and all of the spices in the blanket penetrate the ham, making it not only explode with flavor, but extremely tender.

How to Make Blanketed Ham

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together until it is an even consistency then add water and little at a time until it is a stiff dough. (if too much water is added add flour to stiffen)
  2. Roll out mixture then place in the bottom of a baking pan then place ham on top flat side down and work the mixture upward covering the rest of the entire ham. (Make sure the whole ham is completely covered.)
  3. Bake at 300 degrees F, allowing 25 minutes for each pound of ham. When done the blanket will be very hard. Discard the blanket, and carve.
