Directions:
Wash the fresh ham and pat dry. With a sharp knife score the skin first one wan and then the opposite way to form a diamond shape cut in the skin. Salt and pepper the entire roast. Place on rack in a roaster ( I use a muffin tin turn up side down) and place in a 375 Oven for about an hour. Reduce the heat to 325 and continue to roast for 20 minutes per pound. About 1 hour before end of cooking time add the sliced onions and tomatoes. They will cook and carmelized in the bottom of the roaster. When Roast is done remove meat to a hot platter and pour off the fat, reserving the juice and vegetables. Mash the cooked vegetables and add the cream bring the cream to a boil, stirring to deglaze the pan and make the sauce that you will serve over the meat at the table.
