Honey-mustard glazed ham is just the kind of recipe that makes me love my slow cooker. Five minutes in the morning, a wonderful aroma filling the house all day, and the main part of dinner is all done. My husband made his specialty, biscuits, and I roasted some carrots and tossed them with feta and parsley. It was a lovely Sunday supper.
This is a recipe I found on , from Linda Larsen, and it's dead easy. I bought a boneless 3-pound ham, unwrapped it and put it in the slow cooker. If your ham comes with a glaze packet, you can use or discard. Mine didn't have one. I poured 1/3 cup apple juice in the slow cooker with the ham, then mixed a glaze: 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard. Covered and cooked on low for 8 hours (can be done in 6). Sliced ahd served. We have lots of leftovers, but I have lots of ideas for them, so we're good!
The kids love ham, and this had the perfect amount of sweetness to counteract the saltiness. My 7-year-old even pulled out the leftovers while prowling for a snack. Three pounds is a lot of ham for our family of 4 (the kids don't usually eat much), but I'm looking forward to sandwiches and soups made with the rest. This is definitely a keeper.
