Welcome to my must try slow cooked ham in the slow cooker.
I always thought of ham as being rather boring. It was something that was always added to a cheese sandwich to give it extra depth. Plus for many years I was a vegetarian and I always hated the fact that whenever you bought a cheese sandwich that someone had stuck some ham in it!
Then I met Dominic and he showed me a brand new love for ham. He showed me that there were many really tasty ways to prepare it. Some simple and some not so simple and I soon fell in love with it.
I think part of my hatred for it growing up, was the fact that it was often smoked. This is something I still hate now, so as long as it is unsmoked variety then I am happy.
In this recipe (which is super simple to make) it is flavoured mainly with mustard and peppercorns with a few other seasonings thrown in.
We like to have this in the summer with some salad and then in winter with some roast potatoes and steamed vegetables.
