The best ham EVAR

I was looking for a new ham recipe for a belated holiday dinner.  I am not a huge fan of ham when it's sliced.  It tends to be a bit flavorless.  I was really looking for a recipe that made me fall in love with ham.  I wanted it to be a bit spicy and addicting.  This recipe totally does the trick.  I made this for dinner when we had a few close friends staying with us and they (one was a recent meat eater and non ham fan) loved it.  This is one of those recipes that I would make all the time.  It makes GREAT leftovers and is an easy weeknight meal.

It's one of my new favorites!

Unsliced ham shoulder
1/4 tap cloves
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tblsp. Dijon mustard
1 can ginger ale

Place ham in crockpot.  Place remaining ingredients into a bowl, mix and stir until all ingredients are dissolved. Pour liquid into crockpot.  Fill crockpot with water until liquid is half covering ham. Cook for 6-8 hours on low.  Remove ham from crockpot and slice.  Ham should fall apart!  You can reduce the remaining cooking liquid in a saucepan until it thickens.  Pour over ham when serving. © Kim Bohme and A Bohme Cooked Meal
