Christmas Ham

Christmas Ham



It’s Christmas countdown, 15 days left for Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year.


I get quite excited especially at this time, because my head starts to tick like clock, as to what and how I will prepare for Christmas dinner and the table layout, running from the breakfront to the linen closet. “ Oh, what a thrill.”


Today, we’ll look at the Christmas preparation and a Christmas drink( separate and apart from sorrel which is a must).

Hams vary from size so I’ll just give some guidelines.

Remember you need to save the ham bone for good ole Gungo  Peas Soup for the new year




Place the ham, fat side up, on a rack in the shallow oven pan.


Bake in a moderately slow oven, allowing 15 -20 minutes per lb. Half an before it is finished, remove the ham from the oven, skin it, pour off the dripping, score the fat in a diamond shapes.


Stick in the whole cloves and pour over it some glaze. Mix together 1 cup brown sugar( 1 teaspoon dry mustard optional) 2 or 3 tablespoons pineapple or orange juice.


Garnish with pineapple and cherry.






10 Eggs


1 cup condensed milk

1 cup evaporated milk

½ tsp grated nutmeg

juice of 2 limes

4 tsps vanilla



Blend all ingredients together. Serve over crushed ice.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
