3. After 2 hours baking, begin glazing ham and baste frequently until it is done
4. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before carving to allow juices to settle.
Glaze: While ham is roasting, place chicken stock, wine, honey and thyme in a saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes, or until mixture begins to thicken. Strain out thyme, and season with salt and pepper.
