Ham savory recipe
Beat the yolks of six eggs to a paste with one tablespoon soft butter, one half teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, a good sized pinch cayenne pepper and mace, a little salt and enough peanuts (ground fine) to make one cupful. Mix all together well and cut thin slices of ham (slanting) from the roll. Spread over the slices the mixture. Attach with small skewers or toothpicks and lay in a small casserole.
In a frying pan, put two heaping tablespoons butter, a piece of garlic (chopped very fine), and cook one minute; then add one heaping tablespoon flour and cook slowly until a nice brown. Then add one pint cold water and stir smooth. Strain this over ham with a good shake of tabasco, onion juice, a pinch of cloves and a bay leaf. Then add one cup apple cider. Salt to suit, cover, put in oven and cook 30 minutes.
Serve the ham on slices of toast with gravy or on top of boiled and seasoned macaroni. Very fine.
