5 pounds fresh ham
1 clove garlic, cut up (or garlic powder)

salt and pepper
4 sliced onions
2 sliced carrots
2 stalks celery, cut in pieces
caraway seeds (opt.)
1 bay leaf
1 cup water
1 cup dry wine
3 whole cloves


Score ham. Rub garlic, salt and pepper on all sides well. Put onions, carrots, celery, bay leaf and cloves on bottom of pan. Add water. Lay ham, skin side down, on vegetables.

Roast uncovered at 325 degrees F for 1 hour. Baste frequently with pan juice and wine. Turn meat skin side up and roast until done.

Roasting time is about 4 1/2 hours for a 5 pound ham, from the time the meat is put in the oven. Roasting time is 25 minutes per pound, or roast to 185 degrees F on a meat thermometer.

Baste often with pan juices and wine. Serve with gravy or with raisin sauce made with pan juices.
