DIRECTIONS

  • Remove the ham from its wrappings. Cut off the skin and make sure you remove the plastic thing that covers the end of the bone.
  • Stud the ham with the whole cloves, distributing them evenly over the surface.
  • Put ham and onions into a very large pot and cover with COLD water. Its important to use cold water because it draws the excess salt out of the meat and makes a more flavorful broth.
  • Bring to a boil slowly over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Add all the veggies except the cabbage. Raise heat and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat and simmer another 15 minutes or until the largest potatoes are nearly cooked.
  • Add the cabbage wedges. Raise heat and bring to a boil. Simmer another 10-20 minutes until cabbage is cooked but not mushy.
  • Use a large, slotted, serving spoon to remove all the veggies to a large serving dish.
  • Lift ham onto a platter and carve off a suitable number of servings for the meal.
  • Serve each person a slice of ham and a portion of each vegetable. Grind black pepper over the plate and offer butter for the potatoes and other roots if desired.
