Glazed Ham

10lbs ham
Whole cloves
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp dry mustard
1 1/2 tbsp. flour
Canned pineapple slices

Place ham in a pot and cover with water. Bring slowly to the boil, then simmer for 1 hour. Allow to cool in the water, then remove ham and pour off water. Using a sharp knife, remove the rind from the ham.

Omit these steps when using precooked ham. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Score the fat at 1-inch intervals and stick with cloves. Combine the brown sugar, dry mustard, and flour and press on all sides about 1 1/2 inches thick. Pour the juice from the pineapple over the top of the ham. Place on the pineapple slices.

Bake about 25 minutes to the pound, basting often. Lower the oven temperature to 300 degrees about 15 minutes before the end of cooking time. Coat with more brow sugar mixture and bake 15 minutes without basting for a crisp glaze.

Allow the ham to stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Country Baked Beans

2 cups navy beans
1/4lb salt pork
1 large onion, chopped
2 tbsp. molasses
8oz can tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp. mustard
1 1/2 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
Fresh parsley to garnish.

Soak the beans overnight in enough cold water to cover. Blanch the pork in boiling water a few minutes to remove some of the salt, then drain. Cut pork into small strips.

Drain the beans and cover with fresh water. Bring to the boil, then simmer until the skins burst. Add the onion, molasses, tomatoes and their juice, mustard, sugar and water to the beans. Place beans in a baking dish, scatter over the pork strips and cover the dish.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and bake the beans for about six hours, or until completely tender. Uncover during the last hour to brown the pork. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Potato Salad

10 red potatoes, boiled in their skins
2 stalks of celery, sliced thinly

3 hard cooked eggs, sliced
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise

Pinch of salt and pepper
1 pimento, chopped
2 baby dill or sweet pickles, sliced
Fresh parsley to garnish

Peel the potatoes while still warm. Dice them and place in a large bowl with the celery, onion, and parsley. Add the hard-cooked eggs, reserving a few slices for the top of the salad.

Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Add pimento and dill pickles to the salad and combine with the mayonnaise, coating the ingredients thoroughly. Place egg slices on top and sprinkle with paprika. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Serves 4-6

button Evidences of Inspiration
I believe . . .
"The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, inspired by the Spirit of God equally in all parts (commonly called plenary ["full'] inspiration), including not only the ideas but also the very words (commonly called verbal inspiration), so that what is written is without error (inerrant) whether of doctrine, fact, or precept. or, more briefly, "What Scripture says, God says-through human agents and without error." The Scriptures are complete and sufficient. Nothing is left out that God wanted in them, and nothing is in them that God wanted out. And nothing is to be added to them or taken from them. Scripture is the only infallible rule of faith and practice." THE INSPIRATION OF THE SCRIPTURES by Leon Stump You want evidence? Then read this article.
