Easy Slow Cooker Ham






This ham was a slam-dunk at our house for several reasons.  The sauce was unbelievable and a perfect compliment for the ham.  The ham was reasonably priced and lasted us for two dinners and lunch this week.

I first came across the idea to make ham from this clever new social network where you can find discounts on food and drinks.  After browsing the internet for flavorful recipes using ham, I revisited my brilliant BHG app on my iPad.  I found their "Cherry Cola Ham."  Never lets me down.

I was a little skeptical at first when the original recipe recommended using cherry cola.  I don't drink soft drinks, so why should I put it in my food or my family's food for that matter.  When I read along it sounded too good to pass up and I knew it would be an easy sell to the kids in the house.  Ham, cola, brown sugar? Come on.  I left out the horseradish until I reserved some of the sauce for the kids.  This is one dish you should serve time and time again.  It would be perfect for entertaining a crowd.  Add some sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans and dinner rolls and you've got a nice holidays meal!

What You Will Need:
1 1/2 lb cooked ham
1 C brown sugar
1 T spicy mustard
1 1/2 T horseradish
juice of one lemon
1/2 C cherry cola
2 T cornstarch

1) Place ham in slow cooker.
2) In separate bowl, mix together lemon juice, sugar, mustard and cola.
3) Pour sauce over ham and cook for 4-5 hours.
4) Transfer ham to plate.
5) Pour sauce into medium sauce pan.  Add cornstarch.
6) Bring to boil until thickens.
7) Reduce heat and reserve portion of sauce for anyone who doesn't like horseradish.
8) Add horseradish to remainder of sauce.
9) Serve ham with sauce.

(Variation: Serve with rolls cut into two pieces for ham biscuits.  Add sauce to side as a garnish.)
