For Christmas dinner we had ordered a Honey Baked Ham and had it shipped to us. Never again will we stand in a line that wraps around the building of the Honey Baked Ham Store!!
I like to give the celery and onion a little saute first in some olive oil.
Bring to a boil, give a good stir, and reduce heat to low, and put lid on and let simmer for several hours. 5 - 6 hours later, the ham will have fallen off of the bones. Remove the bones and discard any pieces of fat.
