Anita and I love baked ham, as do our kitties (they get no more than a teaspoonful as a once in awhile treat).

I will bake a bone-in ham like I learned from my mom and paternal grandma...pineapple slices pinned evenly to the surface of the ham with cloves (8 per pineapple ring) with a cherry in the center of each ring (pinned with a toothpick).

We always have honeyed yams, sweet corn, baked beans and fresh bread with lots of butter as sides.

A once in awhile feast need not be made to "health maven" guidelines.

Even though Anita and I are not Christian, we do celebrate the coming of Spring when the Promise of New Life is showing.

...Gravy?  For each cup of pan drippings, stir in 2 T of corn starch dissolved in 1/2 c water.  Bring to a boil and keep on the heat until the gravy is as thick as you like.
