  • Cook time
    4 hours 30 minutes
  • Serves

  • one

    6-pound fully cooked country ham (read the label closely)

  • 6 cups

    unsalted vegetable broth, or water

  • 2 teaspoons

    fennel seed, crushed

  • 1 teaspoon

    freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon

    dried thyme, crushed

  • 3/4 cup


  • 1 tablespoon

    Dusseldorf or Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon

    unsalted butter

  1. To make the glaze, combine the fennel, thyme, black pepper, butter, mustard, and honey in a small sauce pan. Bring it to a boil then turn down the heat to simmer and let the glaze thicken for 10 minutes or so.
  2. Nestle the ham into a 6 1/2-quart crockpot. Add the vegetable broth. Set the heat to low, and set the timer for 4 hours.
  3. At about 3 1/2 hours, check the internal temperature of the ham. It should read around 135? F. Once it does, heat the oven to 375? F.
  4. Remove the ham and place it cut side-down onto a foil-lined sheet tray. Coat it with the glaze. Bake the ham in the oven for 30 minutes, making sure to coat it with a fresh coat of glaze every 10 minutes. When you are happy with the glaze, remove the ham from the oven. Slice and serve.
