tasty tuesday ; samhain feast! (with photos!)

happy belated halloween! moving has been so crazy! i tried to make sure i had scheduled posts up for the week of our moving but that totally didn't happen. my bad.

but anyway! last night i made a traditional celtic samhain meal so i thought i'd share it with you for this week's tasty tuesday.

Limerick Ham

3-5 pound ham
apple cider to cover the ham
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp mustard
20 whole cloves

in a pot, cover the ham with cider, bring to a boil then lower the heat. keep the liquid barely simmering 20 minutes for every pound. remove from heat and allow to stand in liquid for 30 minutes. then remove it from the cider and skin it. stud with whole cloves. mix the sugar and mustard and rub well into the surface of the ham. bake in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes for every pound at 400*

Irish Holiday Potatoes

12 medium potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed
2 eggs, well beaten
8 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sliced green onions

mix potatoes with remaining ingredients. do not whip. place in greased 9in round casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes.*

*i assume it's supposed to be preheated to 350* for the potatoes? i just skipped baking them in the oven so i don't know.
