    P. 192. Take care not to overcook as I did with 4# chicken. Agree w/Chriscooks note about needing a more prominent-tasting ham and fresh fennel being better than dried. Did not use my Le Crueset pot (it's so dad-burned heavy...); perhaps this was reason enough for it being overdone.

    A similar recipe is in Italian Food. Better with fresh than dried fennel stalks. Try using unsmoked SE US country ham. Needs a proper braising pot. Takes about 2 h to cook though the recipe says a shorter time.
