If using processor, add the mustard, wine vinegar, nutmeg, cloves, tabasco, anchovy paste, garlic, pepper, ginger, and thyme to the ham at once and process until the mixture is rather like a coarse pate'.
If using blender, scrape first batch of ground ham into a bowl, add the seasonings, process the rest of the ham, and combine with the mixture in the bowl. If too coarse, process again in 2 batches.
Taste for seasoning, then pack into container, cover, and refrigerate overnight or longer to let flavors mingle. Will keep for kup to 2 wks.
