    1. Place the ham in a large slow cooker. Whisk the cider with the brown sugar, bourbon, honey and mustard. Slowly pour over the ham. Scatter the thyme sprigs into the slow cooker.
    2. Cook, on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 8 hours, or until very tender. Remove ham to rest on a cutting board. Pass the remaining cooking liquid through a fine mesh sieve into a saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes or until slightly reduced. Cut the ham into chunks or slices. Brush the cut pieces with the cooking liquid before arranging on a platter. Serve warm or room temperature.

    I used a smaller ham (3 lbs). It was super easy to make and everyone loved it (even my daughter who says she hates ham!)

    This recipe sounds wonderful. I can't drink alcohol however. Can someone recommend a substitute?

    Any Jim Bean burbon I've used has gone perfectly with this. As well as Four Roses. I didnt have a slow cooker big enough fit the ham I got. And I didnt have a roaster. So I used a oven roster pan and set the oven at 360°, covered the dish in tinfoil and cooked for 4 hours roughly. The hour before it finished I collected the mixture/juice and poured it over the ham and finished cooking it. Turned out very good.

    not bad, the sauce was pretty good I'd give it 4 stars but i cooked it on low for 8hrs like the recipe said and i feel that dried it ot a bit too much. I will try it again but cook it less time

    This is a great recipe. However, the mistake that I made was buying a ham that was already cut. It wasn’t obvious on the label or even when removed from the package. The result was a largely overlooked ham that tasted great but mostly dry. The “spiral” cut hams should not be used in this recipe.

    Loved this ham. Picked up a boneless ham but at Costco and the sauce/syrup was absolutely divine. Will make this one again before winter ends. Thanks for sharing the Yum.
