cook time for this recipe is based on a 6 lb. ham. If choosing
a larger ham, consider using our 7 qt. Dutch Oven

3. In a separate bowl, prepare the glaze by adding the juice, brown sugar, and honey. Whisk together.

 4. Top the ham with this glaze. Place the sprigs of thyme on and around the ham. Put the lid on and bake for 1.5 hours. Baste halfway through cook time by spooning the drippings on to the ham. (Cook for roughly 20 min per pound.)
