Recipe by: Sylvia Woods Preparation Time: 1:00 1) Preheat the oven to 325oF. With a sharp knife, trim all the skin and all but a thin layer of fat from the ham. (Save the skin and fat for dishe like Black-eyed Peas.) With the tip of the knife, cut a very light diamond pattern into all surfaces of the ham. Rub a light coating of sugar into th ham. If you like, brush the ham lightly with the food coloring.
2) Bake the ham on a rack in a roasting pan until well browned and warmed through, 45 to 60 minutes. Let the ham rest 5 to 10 minutes before carving
3) Carve the ham into thin slices with a thin slicing knife. Remove any leftover meat from the bone before storing. Save the bone and any trimming for soups and vegetables.
