A new look at cooking and home decorating...with an attempt to add more greens to the plate, more vegetarian options & hopefully lots of new ideas to explore

Slow Cooker Rum and Coke Ham


Well, these is not put on your best clothes, and then join us for Easter Sunday Ham. This ham is fun and shamefully easy. Once cooked, I like to have lots of flower tortillas, guacamole, rice, black beans, sour cream or grated cheese at the ready.

1 Smithfield ham about 7 pounds, hardwood smoked, butt
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced thin
½ cup rum
2 bay leaves
5 cups Coke-Cola
Grated zest of 1 lemon

Place ham in the pot of the slow cooker. Trim excess ham off the top, just enough to allow the lid to fit on the snugly on the pot. Add onion, rum, bay leaves, Coke (enough to almost cover the ham but not spill over the pot) and lemon zest. Set on High and cook about 8 hours. To serve remove ham from cooking liquid. Discard liquid. Ham should be falling off the bone in clumps. Shred ham then serve.
