Slow Cooker Cider Ham
This recipe turns out so tender and delicious.
- 1-1/4 Cups Natural Apple Cider
- 1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
- 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- 1 Orange
- 6 or 7 lb Bone-In Ham
- 1 Cinnamon Stick
Pour cider into a 6-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, Dijon, ginger and pepper. Zest the orange into the bowl and mix the marinade ingredients together.
Rub the marinade onto one side of the ham and place it marinade-side-down into the slow cooker. Spoon the rest of the marinade all over the rest of the ham. Peel the orange and coarsely chop the pulp, discarding any seeds. Add the orange around the sides of the ham and tuck the cinnamon stick inside too.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours. To serve, transfer the ham to a platter. Cover to keep warm. Strain liquid from the slow cooker into a gravy pitcher and serve with the ham.
