Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.


  1. Put the ham in a large pot then cover with cold water. Bring to a boil then simmer 10 min. (This optional step reduces the saltiness of the ham). Drain well.
  2. Transfer the ham to the ceramic cooking pot, then add the remaining ingredients. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'high' for 7-8 h, or cook at 'low" for 10-12h, until the meat is so tender that falls apart when inserting a fork.
  3. Add a little pepper then serve.
