Boiled Han

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

The Dallas Morning News

Dallas, Texas

March 19, 1914

A ham should be soaked overnight, then washed and scraped before it is boiled. Place it in a large kettle, in cold water, and heat gradually. It is best to let it remain an hour before it comes to a boil, then let it simmer gently, allowing twenty-five or more minutes to each pound.
