How to make it

  • Chop onions and greens.
  • Mix seasonings with greens.
  • Cut 2 inch slits (pockets) on a 45 degree angle, in the ham. Alternate 3 pockets then 2 pockets, making sure they are not parallel.
  • Press seasoned stuffing into slits until they will hold no more.
  • Put ham in pillow case or cheesecloth; add left over stuffing, tie closed.
  • Put ham in large pot and cover with water. Simmer or boil slowly for 20 minutes per pound or till internal temperature reaches 160°. Reduce cooking time by 1/2 hour when using precooked ham.
  • Turn off heat.
  • Let ham cool in the water (about 2 hours).
  • Remove and drain.
  • Chill in refrigerator overnight, in its cloth. Serve cold.

    This is one of those classic Maryland dishes I never got to try before I left that beautiful state. I think a Spring get-away to the Eastern Shore is going to be in the near future....including to a restaurant that serves this. Any recommendations for a restaurant that serves MD stuffed ham?
