I can’t think of this as anything other than a rub.  It creates a gorgeous crust all over the ham.  Do yourself a favour and don’t clean the pot when the ham is finished.  I’ll be posting a recipe tomorrow that uses the same pot and all of these seasonings in it.

Take: 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 T. mustard powder, 3 T. apricot jam, 4 T. fennel seeds, 2 T. oil.

Rub onto ham (mine’s still frozen)

Bake at 350 for 2 hours or until crunchy crust is formed on the top and when a knife is poked into the thickest point the blade comes out hot.  I saved myself a step in dinner prep and threw some small potatoes in with the ham.   Sliced tomatoes and you have a lovely dinner.
