If I could give more stars than 5, I would. This ham was amazing! It was so tender, I could not pick it up out of the pan without it completely falling apart! Here's some secrets that I did. First, I used a 8-pound smoked picnic ham rather than a shank ham. I put it in a dutch oven without a rack. I put the water in as directed. I PUT THE HAM IN FAT SIDE UP! This allowed for the fat to penetrate and "baste" the ham while cooking. I put the lid on it and forgot about it for 7 hours (1 hour per pound) at 275 degrees. Then I poured all of the liquid out, glazed the ham, anc baked it for another hour. I will definately make this again. It was a hit with my husband who is always looking for that meat to fall off the bone. Now if only I could make a roast this tender.... :-)
