I made this recipe for Christmas and everyone loved it. I am cooking another one today along with a pot of beans. I used a spiral sliced ham so that the apple cider, spices, and maple syrup etc. would be infused between the slices. I read some reviewers who said their smoked, cooked ham was too dry using this recipe; try the spiral sliced one instead. I grew up with relatives who smoked their own hams in a smokehouse so I have to say the store-bought hams are too dry, they are also overcooked. If you look, you may be able to find an old farmer who still smokes his own meat, there are some who still do. There are ranchers in my area who raise their own cattle and sell them to buyers in the area; they will cut it up and wrap it for you. It may cost you a little more but you know where the meat is coming from, what it was fed, etc. The meat is more flavorful. I enjoy this recipe and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys using their slow cooker. Vary the spices according to what you like the best.
