Serve hot or cold with mash and greens, crusty bread or potato salad and mustard. Remove the top layer of fat from the gammon, brush the gammon with 1tbsp each of runny honey and wholegrain mustard and cook in a preheated oven at 200 °C (180 °C) mark 6 for about 15-20min until golden.

Remove the lid, lift the pork out of the slow cooker and onto a board, and leave it to stand for 10 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Very carefully, snip off the string and slide a knife, in a horizontal sawing motion, between the ham rind and fat, then lift off the rind, leaving a thin layer of fat on the meat.
Lightly score the ham fat with a knife in a crisscross pattern. Mix the mustard, honey and sugar in a small bowl and spread it all over the ham fat.
Bring the foil in towards the ham to create a bowl to catch any sticky juices. You can keep the recipe super simple and literally just add the gammon and a little water.
But, if you don’t add any water to the slow cooker, the gammon won’t burn. Slow cooking a gammon joint in coke might seem like a strange idea.
If you are making a glaze for the gammon (see details further down), you can use honey then before putting it in the oven. Leave the gammon in the slow cooker for a longer length of time so that it becomes more tender and you are able to pull it apart and shred it.
If you do want to reduce the salt content, ideally you will soak it in a bowl of fresh water for at least 12 hours before you want to cook it. Simply place the whole gammon joint in a large enough saucepan and bring it to the boil.
If you struggle to take it out, or it feels a bit springy, the meat isn’t cooked. You can either serve the gammon straight from the slow cooker, or add a glaze and cook it in an oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
Optional glaze: score the gammon joint and rub some honey over the top. 1 cup cooked ham, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 medium onion, diced 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded 3 lbs.
Russet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin ½ cup water 1 can condense cream of mushroom or cream of broccoli soup 1 tsp. Combine ham, onion, cheese and potatoes in slow cooker.
Mix together water, soup, garlic pepper and salt, then pour into slow cooker, stirring gently to combine. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, adjusting time depending on your slow cooker model.
Is there anything else better than a big bowl of comfort food, like these slow cooker ham and beans? Pile up a giant bowl of creamy salty cumin filled bean goodness and slather some honey butter on homemade cornbread and I’m done for.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a fancy steak dinner, but lately, I’m in an “all I want to do is curl up in bed and not move for 10 hours” kinda mood. And I’ve spent years trying to figure out all their quirks.
Elmer is basically any kind of tomatoes, vinegar, lemon, lime, orange (are you catching my citrus drift here?) Molasses is not an acid but it has a ton of calcium which apparently doesn’t jibe with them either.
Imagine a tomato headed version of Elmer sentencing your bouncy little Bugs Bean to a slow and agonizing death by boiling for hours and hours. Long story short, cook your dry beans alone first and then add all their acid-loving and molasses friends once they are good and soft.
However, from years of training, I still don’t salt mine until about 3/4 of the way through cooking. I’m a big advocate of simple recipes, so I don’t use any fancy tricks BUT if you really struggle with tough beans here are a couple of ideas.
Add a 1/4 tsp of baking soda before you start cooking them (I don’t because it makes them slightly less nutritious according to some sources) I made this recipe in our amazing new Stove Top Safe Programmable Slowpoke from Hamilton Beach.
I’m so excited to tell you about it because I cannot even begin to express how much I adore this slow cooker. I get sent a lot of products because of our blog and many of them do not make the cut and get past on.
I don’t mean to yell but it’s STOVE TOP SAFE!!!!!!! Goodbye hours of soaking out crusty inserts or buying those expensive slow cooker liners.
And in case you are wondering if I am qualified to make this recommendation I own THREE slow cookers. The other two are gathering dust in my cone box because this baby has taken over my kitchen.
2 pounds dry pinto beans 2 onions diced optional 1 cup chunks of ham or bacon or 1-2 ham hocks 32 ounces chicken or vegetable stock 64 ounces water 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1/2-1 tablespoon onion powder if you add onions decrease to 1/2 tablespoon 1/2 tablespoon cumin 1 teaspoon pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt adjust based on saltiness of ham/bacon 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper Add pinto beans, onions, ham/bacon/ham hocks, stock and water to slow cooker.
You may need to add additional liquid depending on your beans and the temperature of your slow cooker (they vary in intensity). I like to add my seasonings once the beans are noticeably soft but not completely broken down (about 3/4 of the way through).
They would simmer on the stove all day, filling the house with warm smells of home cooking, while the “extra water” that had to be added regularly simmered right along with them on the small burner at the back of the stove top. It was a back and forth dance of adding water, keeping those pots boiling and not letting those peas cook too far down.
They are a life-saving tool when we want to put good, home cooked food on the table even if we have to spend our days at ball games, music practice, working in the yard or putting in hours at the office. Chalk it up to the length time the peas spend in the crock pot bathed in all that broth and ham and peppered goodness.
A quick 5 minutes in the morning yields beautifully tender peas just as if Mom stood all day at the stove and cooked them! IF YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE, BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW!RATE IT, LEAVE A COMMENT OR SNAP A PHOTO.
