You know, I should have looked here before I tried this at home ... * sigh *
I put my little half-ham (only have a 1.5 qt cooker) in with potatoes and carrots for about 5 - 5.5ish hours ... my Oops was in putting in too much beef stock! Ham came out about drowned! * giggle * potatoes and carrots were yum! Had to wrap the leftover ham in papertowel to try to soak-up the excess stock.
Came out alright though, just a bit water logged. Leftover is good fried on my flat-top grill!

Ooo, I tried lamb once, but my aunt didn't know how to cook it & it didn't turn out good at all. To top it off it was for some crazy fad diet thingy too! So I look forward to trying this out, thank you!

Easter Ham in a Crockpot with Fruited Cranberry Sauce adapted from Good Cheap Eats
one large half ham, that fits in your largest crockpot 1 cup apple juice or cider 1/2 can whole berry cranberry sauce - or the other kind, your preference 1/2 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained all of the juice from the canned pineapple 3/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Place ham, cut side down into crockpot. Stir canned cranberry sauce, pineapple, apple juice, and pineapple juice together and pour over the ham. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove ham from crockpot and place in roasting pan, on its side.
Heat the oven to 375°. Combine brown sugar, Dijon mustard, ground cloves, and enough of the juices from the crockpot to create a paste. Spread paste over ham. Place in hot oven to glaze, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve.
Combine the remaining cranberry, pineapple, a can of drained mandarin oranges, and 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger if you like ginger. Variation: add fresh ginger, and/or lemon and orange zest in it; they are really good if you have them. Chill well, can be made several days ahead. (I always make mine ahead and add the mandarin orange juice to the crock pot with the ham.) Serve fruited cranberry sauce with the ham.
Did anyone click on the "Traditional Lamb" link? I found that fascinating. WHO KNEW???!!! I've never eaten lamb and now I want to. Maria I know you are in Ireland but I do have a Trader Joe's here near me! If I didn't have a ham and frozen turkey breast, I think I'd be getting the lamb. I'm tempted.
Thank you very much. I'm always interested in new recipes for my slow cooker. (I tend to get in a rut and fix the same things over and over again until my hubby gets bored and refuses to eat them for a while.)
