If you're reading this on a Friday and you're like me, you'll be in the grocery store tomorrow, so today I'll give you ingredients for a recipe for Sunday dinner. How about Aretha Franklin's Queen of Soul Ham? I got this recipe a few years ago when Aretha was on Martha Stewart, B.I. -- Before Incarceration :-P Aretha said on the show that soul can be a lot of things to a lot of folks -- it's a feeling. When you cook, you should put your soul into it -- people will taste the difference (trust me on this one). Now my notes on this one -- I'm giving you Aretha's original recipe for the whole bone-in ham; however, you can achieve the same effect with a couple of ham steaks on a Tuesday night in a shallow baking pan. Just eyeball all the ingredients, switch the whole cloves for clove powder and reduce the amounts of the remaining ingredients so you don't end up with a brown sugar fruit platter! Also -- I just could not put coconut on my ham. Eww... but if you like the idea, go for it! Oh -- and I used dark brown sugar. Light is for!
