I did not follow the recipe even remotely exactly. I used blackberry preserves instead of apricot jam, no brown sugar, brown mustard instead of mustard powder, and cooked it in the crock pot on low. It came out wonderfully - falling-apart, juicy, tangy, and it was so easy to pull the bone out. The sauce made a wonderful gravy, perfect for mashed potatoes or for dipping fresh toast strips. Big hit with the kids, too! This recipe might be perfect as written, but it's perfect if you take great liberties as well. I think I will be buying up a number of hams while they are cheap post-Christmas and making this part of our normal meal rotation!
