I had to share our holiday tradition since most of you seem to appreciate food as much as me. In Southern MD, where I'm from, stuffed ham is a holiday delicacy. One crop in particular, kale, is a staple in this recipe as it's generally available at this time of year and is sought after.

Anyhow, bottom line is 1 corned ham, kale, onions, cayenne, mustard seed, cabbage, salt and pepper. You stab the ham as you'll see in many horror flicks, then fill the slits with this ground up stuffing. Once carved, you get this wonderful visual effect, plus a great mix of salt from the ham, plus slightly bitter from the kale with cayenne waking all of this up. It makes for one of the most longed for sandwiches of all time and gives you another reason to anticipate and appreciate the holidays. If you ever have an opportunity, partake!

p.s. although it's wonderful, it will stink up your house, car, etc something awful, but is soooooooo good.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone's lives continue to get better!

:shock: Thanks, Jaynik, that looks and sounds absolutely delicious, does this follow some ethnic influence, as I was born in Baltimore and I never had the opportunity to dine on something as exquisite as your corned ham! Darn it! :(

Hey Carl, I suppose many Baltimorons :-) haven't had it before. Not as much ethnic as regional. I think St Mary's County is its origin and where you'll see it most often. If you ever get the chance!

Hi Guys!

This is a recipe that I will add to my special things to do. It seems that every once in a great while I run into something new and different and just sounds terrific. :)

Any chance of sharing the recipe? I live in Calvert (Fattys BBQ) and my wife wants to try making one.

Hey,Fatty01, I'm not sure of the actual recipe but if you're familiar with either Nick's of Calvert in Prince Frederick or the Mckays grocery markets they carry this certain times of the year,around the holidays and Easter. I live in Hughesville and go by McKays all the time.

My wife loves this stuff and will buy it by the pound. It smells vinegary and "kaley" (if that's a word)...

I'm new to the smoking hobby and will make this in the future for my wife. Thanks for the idea, jaynic!
