Christmas Countdown: "Jamon de Bola"

Christmas in the Philippines means good food. There are ten days before Christmas and I presume many people are still thinking about the food selections they will serve for the festivities. One of the most popular food items during the season is ham ball or jamon de bola.

An example is the Purefoods Fiesta Ham brand, which is sold with pineapple sauce. It is suggested that the ham should be topped with sugar and bake in a pre-heated 375 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 20 minutes or until sugar melts and caramelizes.
