Happy St. Nick’s & Recipe Sunday – Tangy Ham in Cider

Happy St. Nick’s everyone!  The girls were excited to wake up and see that St. Nick had come to fill their stockings last night – they must have been good!

Here’s the recipe for this week.  This is great to warm your house up and make it smell delicious!

Tangy Ham in Cider
Kim Lapacek
3-lb ham (or larger; whatever fits in your slow cooker)
4 c. Lapacek’s Apple Cider
1 T. Lapacek’s Mulling Spice
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. ground cloves
Place ham, cider, mulling spices and Worcestershire sauce in slow cooker.  Cover.  Cook on Low 9-10 hours.  Remove ham from cider and place in baking pan. 

Take a quarter cup of the juice from the slow cooker and mix it with the brown sugar, dry mustard and ground cloves to make a paste.  Add more juice as needed.  With a spatula, spread the paste on the top of the ham.

Bake at 375-degrees for 30 minutes, or until the paste has turned into a glaze.
