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.
CAUTION: Do not burn, or scorch. Remove syrup and place in a mixing bowl, allow to cool and reserve for later.

INGREDIENTS:

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.
SERVES: 6

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.

Recipe For Friendship

Fold two hands together
And express a dash of sorrow
Marinate it overnight
And work on it tomorrow

Chop one grudge in tiny pieces
Add several cups of love
Dredge with a large sized smile
Mix with the ingredients above

Dissolve the hate within you
By doing a good deed
Cut in and help your friend
If he should be in need

Stir in laughter, love, and kindness
From the heart it has to come
Toss with genuine forgiveness
And give your neighbor some

The amount of people served
Will depend on you
It can serve the whole wide world
If you really want it to

~ Author Unknown ~

2 well rounded scoops of respect
2 generous portions of affection

A trusted holiday treat, that can come in many sizes and flavors, Bruschettas. Start anywhere... here are a couple of great ones;
Bruschetta
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
1) In a small mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, and salt and pepper. Mix well, cover, and refrigerate. 
2) Cut the loaf of French bread into 12 slices on the diagonal. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Reduce the oven's temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
3) Spoon equal amounts of the tomato mixture onto the toasted slices of bread.
4) Top with slices of mozzarella. Place the pan of bread back into the oven until the cheese has melted just slightly and is oozing over the tomatoes, approximately 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
Makes 12

Holiday Artichoke Bruschetta

1 Preheat the broiler.
2 In a medium bowl, mix marinated artichoke hearts, Romano cheese, red onion and mayonnaise. Top French baguette slices with equal amounts of the artichoke heart mixture. Arrange slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
3 Broil in the preheated oven 2 minutes, or until toppings are bubbly and lightly browned.
 Also great, add spinach or tomatoes!
Will make 8 yummy baguettes

An easy recipe is cream cheese, cut in half diagonally, and arrange to look like a Christmas tree. Find a jar of good chili sauce (I use a brand called Homemade Chili sauce), pour it over the top of the cream cheese. If you want, you can put shrimp or that fake crab meat on the side, serve with crackers. If you want to go the Martha Stewart route, you can cut tiny stars out of green and yellow peppers and arrange them artistically on the tree.

A quick sweet treat is to melt white chocolate, mix some crushed candy canes into the chocolate, and pour onto a cookie sheet. When it is set, break into pieces.

I bake bruschettas from my garden tomatoes and herbs, but I didn't have a recipe for an artichoke one. Sounds yummy!

I don't know how to tell all of you wonderful folks about this wonderful cookbook, without sounding trivial. But this is your cookbook. these are YOUR FAMILY HEIRLOOM RECIPES, and my tested and tried recipes! How can you top that, except if you add FREEPER HUMOR...

"the first Freeper Cookbook.--What a gem that would be!!"

What an idea, A Freeper Cookbook, complete with dynamite recipes, peppered with conservative, and wacko left views, as only you folks can produce! A living FLAME THROWER tribute to this wonderful,  Jim Robinson creation, and a method of fund raising that could, I repeat Could, rival them all!
This has to be a joint venture with everyone needed to contribute something! I've written a Cookbook, and it's not as easy as it looks! This post is a trial balloon, to see if the idea has any merit, meaning I could count on your assistance, in attempting this undertaking (what a dreadful word at this stage of my life)! Also, I'll not proceed without Jim's endorsement, and whatever legal, and accounting help needed to begin it properly!
Like everyone of you, I have an exciting, and event-filled life, (spitting out my coffee, laughing) and I'll be,  needing your help, with recipes, as wild and crazy as Razorback-bert's Catch a nutria and Fruitcake, offerings, to the more mundane, Howie's southern-fried squirrel with cooking tips, "Personally I don't cook the head, but some consider it a delicacy", and who can forget, JohnYankeeCmpsr, Irish Immigrant to Boston Chile, complete with housekeeping and dating tips " it helps fluff the sheets as you sleep", and "A true gentleman takes to the couch during bean-storms when a lady is present"!
Yes folks, this little Nonpartisan  gem could be a barn burner, NOT AVAILABLE IN ANY STORE, but only by email, LiberalsSuck@#%@#%......developing!

You can order a goose at any large grocery store, and that is a real bonus... It will come in fresh, or fresh frozen. Nobody really know how long the turkeys that we buy have been frozen, or partially thawed, and re-frozen...I know..thats not allowed to happen...but ..DUH!
