I met a lady sorting through a bin of hams at the grocery store. I had missed those and she commented they were the best. They were smoked, mostly boneless, butt portions. Well, they were half the price of the sliced one I had in my basket, so I asked her how she cooked it. She wraps the ham in foil and cooks in the crock pot until done. The foil keeps the juices in, she said. So I tried it for Christmas Dinner. Superb.
- 6 lbs smoked ham
- 1⁄2 cup pepper jelly (or favorite glaze)
- Score surface of the ham by lightly cutting the surface in a diamond pattern or criss-cross pattern.
- Trim the ham if necessary to fit the crock pot.
- Wrap in one piece of heavy duty foil.
- Place the ham, cut portion down in the crock pot.
- Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours until the internal temperature of the ham is 140°F
- Remove the foil and drain the juices.
- Brush with your favorite glaze or a pepper jelly. I like Pineapple Habenero pepper jelly.
- Return to crock pot and cook until the internal temperature is 150 to 160°F.
This was OK...the flavor was VERY good & it was VERY moist, but not as tender as I had hoped. MIGHT try it again.
