Home-Made Centerpiece Dresses Up Ham
Gay as spring blossoms is this
smart centerpiece for juicy,
tender Easter-season ham. Even
the ham reflects the gaiety of
spring with its flower pattern
instead of the conventional dia
mond scoring. This is as easy as
using a scalloped cookie cutter
to make the flower designs.
Center each blossom with cloves
to complete the flower.
The gay egg belles sporting
the newest in spring millinery
are equally easy to make. The
eggs are hard-cooked and fea
tures to your fancy are inked on
the eggs. The hats are made with
tiny paper cups trimmed with
bits of ribbon, veiling and arti
HAM IS ONE of the best meat
buys this season, especially with
the new close trim, reducing fat
to the minimum needed for fla-
vorsome cooking. Give this de
licious, traditional Easter meat
its due by cooking it according to
the most modern methods and
dressing it up as attractively as
in the photograph.
Wipe the meat clean with
damp cloth. Place ham fat side
up on rack in open roasting pan.
Do not add water. Do not cover.
Do not baste. If you have a meat
thermometer insert it through
outside fat into center of thick
est muscle so that bulb does not
rest on bone or fat.
TIMES GIVEN are for ham at
room temperature when started.
Since heat penetrates a thick
piece of meat like a ham very
slowly, additional time should be
allowed when meat has been
taken from refrigerator a short
time before roasting. (Many
hams on the market carry cook
ing directions which should be
used for that particular kind.)
Half an hour before ham is
done, take from oven and re
move rind. To make flower de
sign on ham, cut fat surface with
scalloped cookie cutter and place
3 to 4 cloves in center of each.
Spread ham with strained apri
cot jam or orange marmalade.
Return scored and glazed ham
to oven and bake remaining
(Oven Temperature 300® F.-325" F.)
