  • Bone-in Ham from pastured pork

  • Brown sugar

  • Butter

  • Whole cloves

  • Ground cloves

  • Sprinkle of love


1. Preheat oven to 250 F

2. Place ham in a roasting pan.

3. Score outside of ham with a very sharp knife about 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart, in 2 directions to create a

diamond pattern.
4. Place a whole clove in each “corner” of the score marks

5. Mix about 1 1/2 cups brown sugar with 1 cup melted butter to make a paste
6. Add: 1 tsp of cloves
1/4 tsp of Allspice

7. Rub the paste all over the ham, making sure that it goes into the scored crevices.

8. Add about 1/2 an inch of water to bottom of the pan. 9. Cook in oven, “low and slow”, meaning at 250 F for 2-4 hours. Check on it every once in a while. When the paste melts and drips off, add more or baste from the drippings. Don’t be scared to use LOTS of butter!
