Savory Ham

This recipe, which I found it in an old cookbook from the 1940's, has become a great favorite of mine. It's simple to prepare and the lemon juice and seasonings lend a wonderful flavor to the ham. Although the recipe says to marinate it for two hours, there have been times when I put it together right before supper with out letting it sit, and it still turned out well. The recipe below only serves 4, so I usually double or triple it so we can have leftovers.

The ham marinating.
Savory Ham

8 slices cold cooked ham
Juice of 2 lemons
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. natural unrefined sugar
1 tsp. paprika
2 Tbsp. minced parsley

Blend all ingredients except the ham. Place ham in deep dish or bowl and pour lemon mixture over all, coating well. Set aside in the refrigerator for two hours to marinate, basting the ham occasionally with the liquid in the dish. In a skillet saute the ham in a little hot butter, heat liquid in what butter remains and pour over ham. Serve hot.
