This gorgeous glazed ham freezes well, so you'll always have some on-hand for weeknight dinner or for lunch!



  1. Remove the string from the pork and place in a large Dutch oven or pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat for 1 hour. Remove the pork from the pot and discard the water.
  2. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  3. In the same pot over medium heat, soften the onions and garlic in the oil. Add the apricot juice, jam and spices. Return the pork to the pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 3 hours or until the meat begins to shred apart, turning over twice during the cooking process. Remove the cover. Turn the pork fat side up and drizzle with the cooking liquid. Cook, uncovered, for another 30 minutes.
  4. Slice the pork or break into large pieces. Serve with mashed potatoes and pees, if desired. Drizzle with the cooking liquid.


  1. According to the french version of the recipe, it goes in the oven for 3 hours after you put the pork back in the pot

  2. At what point does this ham go into the oven?? After the second boil with the juice and spices or the last 30 minutes??
