Christmas Corner

The earth has grown old with its burden of care, But at Christmas it always is young.
- Phillips Brooks



Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
- Eric Sevareid



Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.

Glazed Christmas Ham Recipe

Ingredients:
5-6 lb. fully cooked ham
1/4 cup whole cloves
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. honey mustard sauce


Directions:

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place ham, cut side down in a large, foil-lined roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham with a knife, in a diamond pattern, then place the whole cloves in the scores, where the lines intersect.

Step 2:
Mix the honey mustard and brown sugar in a small bowl.

Step 3:
Brush some of the glaze over the ham, then cover with foil. Bake for approximately 1 and 1/2 hours at 325 degrees, basting ham every 20 - 30 minutes with the glaze. During the last 5 minutes of baking time, remove the foil and turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze, being careful to watch it closely during this time, to avoid burning the top. Then, remove ham from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
