2 yellow onions, peeled
18 cloves
1⁄2 cup mild Swedish mustard

Place a ham in a large pot. Add carrots, celery ribs, bay leaves, peppercorns, and onions, each studded with 6 cloves. Cover with water, cover pot, and simmer over low heat, skimming occasionally, for 3 hours.

Remove ham from broth and place on a cutting board. Cut away and discard rind. Preheat oven to 325°.
