Stuffed Ham is a Southern Maryland tradition. The ham is not smoked or dry cured in the manner most people think of as ham, it is corned (hence Wanderinjew’s likening it to pastrami) The ham has slits cut into it that are stuffed with seasoned greens, any extra greens are placed over the top. The ham is then tied up in a clean cloth (a clean white t-shirt works well) & simmered until done.[:D]
By the way Wandering, do you have an address for the diner in Jessup? I might have to give it a try.
