Tennessee Baked Ham Recipe

Tennessee Baked Ham           

1 country ham, 10 to 12 pounds
4 cups of yellow cornmeal
1 cup of firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon of pepper
Dry Bread crumbs

Soak the ham overnight in cold water. Drain and wipe dry. Mix the cornmeal with brown sugar and pepper. Add enough water to make a claylike paste. Place the ham in a shallow baking pan. Cover the ham with cornmeal paste, making a shell about 1 inch thick. Roast in a preheated oven at 350F. for 4 hours or until a meat thermometer registers 170F. Add a little boiling water to the pan but do not baste. Remove from oven. Strip off paste and skin. Sprinkle the ham with dry bread crumbs, replace in oven and roast until brown. Makes 24 servings
