Alex loves it when we make a ham in the crockpot so I occasionally make one for him. Typically I do some sort of sweet glaze since that is what traditionally goes with ham. However, I let Alex make this particular glaze and since he’s not huge on sweet ham he opted for a more savory flavor.
The finished flavor is actually quite interesting. While it certainly wasn’t something I would have thought to put together it really actually works. Alex absolutely loved the flavor and I thought it wasn’t bad. I still prefer a sweet glazed ham, but this is a great option if you’re in the mood for something a little more savory.
By cooking this in the crockpot it really is a set it and forget it type of meal. Just let it cook and marinade in its own glaze for several hours and voila, a fantastic dinner. I love to pair it with my Mac Cheese recipe. They really go perfectly together.
