December 16, 2022

Village Park Milton’s Chef Tami Moore shares one of her favorite holiday recipes.


  • Approx 12 Pounds Fresh Ham (Uncured Ham)
  • 5 Tbsp Butter
  • 4 Bay Leaves Crumbled
  • 3 Garlic Cloves Minced
  • 1 Tsp Dried Thyme
  • 3 Tbsp Parsley Chopped
  • 4 Tbsp Minced Onion
  • 3/4 Cup White Wine Divided
  • 2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • Juice of 1 Lemon


Score the skin of the fresh ham and rub the skin with butter. Place in a shallow roasting pan (earthenware is fine if available). Combine bay leaves, thyme, parsley and minced onion; then sprinkle generously mixture over the ham. After, drizzle the juice of lemon, 1/3 cup wine, paprika and salt.

Roast for 1 1/2 hours at 350°. Add to the pan 1/3 cup wine and 1 cup water. Continue to roast for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours, or 25 minutes per pound, making sure to baste every 1/2 hour with juices in the pan.

Carefully remove from the oven and enjoy!
