"This recipe has become, hands-down, my favorite ham! This has replaced our Christmas Ham and makes the entire house smell amazing! There is nothing like coming home with this ham cooking! Experiment with the amounts of seasonings to your liking. I prefer more nutmeg but some prefer less nutmeg and more maple syrup!" — REINEJESSICA

1 (6 pound)
bone-in country ham
apple cider, or as needed
I have always used a pre-cooked ham (Kentucky Legend brand) and cooked it @ the 6-8 hour setting on my crock pot. When I submitted the recipe that was changed. I know some people have been using an uncooked bone-in ham on the 10 hour setting. Hope that helps!!
I will not be tring this again. I bought a precooked ham and as others suggested I planned to slow cook it for 5-6 hours. Even though I cooked it in a ton of apple cider, the meat was extremely dry (unless you like jerky). I though it made the house smell horrible (my hubby didn't think so)... Very embarrassing since we had 15 co-workers over for dinner.
HELP! I want to do this recipe but it doesn't say whether the ham is one of those "pre-cooked" ones that you just heat and serve or is it uncooked?
This was wonderful!! I used a cooked, smoked ham and shortened the cooking time to 6 hours and it was just perfect. We used the liquid to drizzle over the ham once on the dinner table, and it was so delicious. Everyone raved about it!! This is a definite keeper in our house!
I made this ham for Easter and it was a big hit with the adults, but the flavors were a little stong for my liking. In fairness, I did put everything together the night before and kept in the refrigerator, so perhaps this additional time allowed the flavors to permeate more than they would have. This has a very interesting flavor and I may well make this again, but I think I will cut back a little on the spices, especially the cloves and cinnamon. Overall very good though!
I will never make a ham the traditional way again. We made one in the oven and one in the slow cooker.We definetly didn't have any left-overs from the slow cooker ham!! DEICIOUS!!!!
I can't describe in words how awesome this is!!! With all the raving over it from my 15 and 17 year olds and hubby, this is going to replace MY Christmas ham, too!
This recipe was one of the best slow cooker recipes I have ever tried. The flavors were exquisite and the meat was extremely tender. We didn't even have enough leftover for sandwiches. We picked it clean!! This will definitely be a staple in our house from now on, especially because it was relatively inexpensive as well as delicious.
