Score ham through fat layer on all sides in a crisscross pattern. Place in a 6-quart crock-pot. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients and pour over ham.

This ham is all but effortless to make, but is sinfully delicious. I've been making it for Easter, Christmas and family get-togethers for years. The leftovers are fabulous for sandwiches and salads.
