It was my birthday this past week! I didn’t have my family here to help me celebrate it, but I did feel the love from many Florida friends. When growing up, my mom always would make me hamballs for my birthday–the orange juice and brown sugar caramelizes to compliment the pork–so of course they taste like celebration and love to me.

Gary and I made them here last week with the juice from our oranges. It didn’t take the place of sharing them with my family, but it did make them seem closer.

Ingredients:

Balls:
1 1/2 lbs ground ham
1 lb ground pork
2 c bread or cracker crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1 c milk
S&P

Glaze:
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c vinegar
1 1/2 c orange juice
1 T dry mustard
1 t lemon juice
S&P

Instructions:

First, turn the oven on to 325 degrees. Next, make the balls. Add the ham, pork, crumbs, eggs, milk, and S&P together, and form into balls that are 2 inches in diameter. Put in a baking pan. Next, make the glaze. Put all glaze ingredients into a bowl, mix well. Pour over the balls. Cook for 2 hours, turning ever 30 minutes. Enjoy!
