Holiday Ham with Fruit and Root Beer Glazed

 
BOILING AND SYRUP INGREDIENTS:
BOILING HAM:
1) Place ham in a heavy-bottomed black iron pot or dutch oven.
2) Surround the ham with apples, grapes, orange and cloves. Add root beer and dust with cracked black pepper and file. 3) Bring to a rolling boil and reduce to simmer. Boil approximately 1 hour and turn ham over and continue boiling until root beer is reduced to a thick syrup.
4) Remove ham and set aside. Continue to reduce syrup until it is the consistency of molasses.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
1) Place in the mixing bowl, all of the above ingredients except the ham. Using a wire whisk, blend all spices into the mustard mixture until well incorporated.
2) Place ham in center of dutch oven and coat completely with the sweet mustard mixture.
3) *Bake uncovered for 1 hour.
*Preparing a decorated the ham for the table centerpiece. Start by uusing a sharp paring knife to cut slits on eighth inch deep diagonally across the ham. Continue in the same pattern from the opposite side until even triangles appear from the cuts. Stuff with cloves and, using toothpicks, secure pineapple slices or fresh strawberries to the top of the ham before baking.

I have it on good authority that I was good enough this year to be able to expect a copy in my stocking.

While you are waiting for that ham, you need munchies - mix 2 parts by volume cream cheese with 1 part slightly drained crushed pineapple - stuff into celery sticks, but press a groove in the middle of the cream cheese mixture. Put some red hot pepper jelly in a small ziplock bag, massaage enough to make "flowy", cut off a snip on one corner and pipe along the groove. (If playing with your jelly bothers you, you can melt the jelly a little in a microwave instead)

We seem to forget, that until the 20's the most popular holiday fare was and still is in many parts of the world...

Golden Roasted Goose with Sage Dressing

Preheat oven at 400° F
1) In a skillet, melt butter add scallions, onion, celery and apple. Sauté about 10 minutes until onion is golden brown.
2) Transfer to large bowl, add bread crumbs, salt, pepper and herbs. Toss to combine, then add chicken stock and eggs. Toss again to combine ingredients.
3) Add more stock if stuffing seems too dry..
Rinse and dry goose, season cavity with salt and pepper.
4) Stuff goose loosely with dressing and truss. Prick exterior of goose all over with sharp-tined fork to allow excess fat to escape during roasting.
5) Place goose on rack in deep roasting pan, breast side up. Place in oven, roast 15 minutes, then lower temperature to 350° F. Continue roasting 20 minutes per pound or until goose is very well-browned and leg joints move easily.
6) During roasting remove any fat that accumulates in pan and baste with white wine or cider. When goose is done, remove to board loosely covered with aluminum foil for ½ hour before carving.
It's still a favorite in many homes because it's scrumptious!!!

Would it be a holiday without a special lasagna, I say no.. surprise!!  This one is made with tiny meatballs ( ground turkey balls today), sliced hard-cooked eggs, ricotta, mozzarella and Parmigiano Reggiano cheeses, and a smooth marinara sauce, encased in layers of lasagna noodles. My family and I rolled hundreds of marble-size meatballs while sitting at the kitchen table, with strong coffee, joking and singing.

Ever tryed a goose roasted in a convection oven?

Use the same ingredients. It takes half the time and a nice crispy brown crust will appear on the surface.

"At last the dishes were set on, and grace was said. It was succeeded by a breathless pause, as Mrs. Cratchit, looking slowly all along the carving knife prepared to plunge it in the goose, but when she did and when the long-expected gush of stuffing issued forth, a murmer of delight arose all around the board, and even Tiny Tim beat on the table with the handle of his knife and cried 'Hurrah'!

"There never was such a goose. Bob Cratchit said he didn't believe there ever was such a goose cooked. Its tenderness, size and flavor were the themes of universal admiration.

"Edged out by apple sauce and mashed potatoes, it was a sufficient dinner for the whole family.

"Everyone had enough and the youngest Cratchits in particular were steeped in sage and onion to the eyebrows.

" 'Merry Christmas and God bless us everyone', cried Tiny Tim."

Does anyone have any good recipes for Christmas Eve Hors' Dourves?

Not exclusively Christmas, but:

Mix equal volumes of good quality bulk sausage and pork-flavored stuffing mix, form into balls, wrap with bacon, secure with toothpick, and bake in a pan @ 350 for 20-25 min. These will dissapear as quickly as you can make them!

Take canned drained whole water chestnuts wrap a slice of bacon around each water chestnut and toothpick it. Dip in soy sauce and then brown sugar. Bake till bacon is done. Sorry no measurements or temp. I just wing it.

Thou breakest mine heart - if I had one. While I await the arrival of both my soon-to-be-treasured signed cookbooks, we're still living on a diet due to Thanksgiving feasting. We're turning into Atkins people. :)
