Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In Southern Maryland the Stuffed ham is usually served at Thanksgiving. This recipe was given to me by a client from where I worked. Her husband had been stationed in Southern Maryland while in the service. We had stuffed ham at Jenny and Gordi's wedding. Thanks to Gail and Roger. I have never fixed this my self because John would not eat it with the spinach and wine. I am sure it would be quite festive during the holidays.
