Crocked Ham, Slow Style

Thank goodness for recipes like this one.

A busy week means consolidating some of the cooking time as well as simplifying mealtime planning.

Sliced ham with veggies tonight. Ham and cheese grilled sammies later, southern ham and potato frittata for the weekend… yup that’s three meals down and still a lot of left overs.

Crocked Ham

Combine:
1/2 cup of brown sugar
with enough bourbon to moisten
Stir in:
1 teaspoon coarse grain mustard
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish, pressed dry
and rub all over a 3 to 4 pound ham.

Place in a slow cooker and cook on high for an hour. Add a can of cola and cook on low for 6 hours.

Remove if desired and glaze with drippings in a hot oven for about 20 minutes to caramelize the outer layer.

Nothing could be any easier. Well, maybe ham biscuits the next morning for a quick git-up-and-go…
