Ingredients

HAM LOAF:
4 cups cornflakes
1 pound ground smoked ham
1 pound ground lean pork
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chopped green pepper
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon whole cloves
PLUM SAUCE:
Juice from number 2-1/2 tin of blue plums (about 1-1/2 cups)
Small piece (1 inch) stick cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons water
1/16 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Blue plums (approximately 10) stoned and cut in half

Instructions

Measure cornflakes, then use a rolling pin to crush them into coarse crumbs. Combine meats with eggs, milk, salt and green pepper. Mix well. Add crushed cornflakes and mix thoroughly. Pat brown sugar into bottom of loaf pan, 9-1/2x5-1/2x2-3/4 inches. Sprinkle with cloves. Add meat mixture, packing down carefully. Bake in a moderate 350-degree oven about 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until loaf is thoroughly cooked through to center. Turn out onto a platter to serve. Flick out cloves with a fork if desired. Serve with Plum Sauce. Makes 8 servings. To make plum sauce, heat juice to boiling with cinnamon. Mix cornstarch and salt with cold water and add to boiling juice. Stir constantly until mixture boils again and is thickened. Add remaining ingredients; simmer slowly 10 minutes. Serve hot over ham loaf or ham slices.
