Today I put my Easter Ham in the crock pot with one cup of water.It was so moist, & the juice from the ham made the delicious gravy.It was a precooked skinless ham .Put it on low for four hours. My sister in laws do this all the time & I could use the oven for the rest of my dishes.The key was the moistens of the ham.
Many years ago I read an article regarding canned ham and how it just tastes "chemically" and not smoked like a bone-in ham. In the article they said it's because chemical smoke is used but if you want to make it taste just like an old-fashioned ham baste it with vanilla extract! I've been doing that ever since and you would not believe how delicious it is! The ham winds up being a little sweetened but the chemical taste is GONE!
Ham contains complete protein and is a source of lean meat, so yes a diabetic can eat some ham. 3 ounce serving is about 125 Calories however it has over 1,000mg of salt. Go easy on the ham cause all the salt will retain fluids in your body. Moderation as usual!
