1 chunk of Yunan ham (which is probably not available, so substitute prosciutto ends)
honey or maple syrup
Bring a pot of water to boil. Put in the prosciutto end(s) and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes. Remove the chunk of meat and cut into slices about 3-4 mm thick. Lay slices into a shallow baking dish. In a small bowl, combine 1.5-2 cups of low salt chicken broth and 1/2 cup of honey or maple syrup. You need enough sauce to completely submerge the ham slices and it should taste extremely sweet at this point. Pour the sauce over the ham, cover the baking dish with foil and poke a few holes in the foil with a fork. Place the baking dish in a steamer, bring the water in the steamer to a boil, then turn down heat to a low simmer and steam for 1-1.5 hours.
