Sweet Southern Slow-Cooker Ham Recipe

1 bone-in fully-cooked ham, about 5 1/2 pounds
1 cup apple cider
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup Kentucky bourbon, *
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon-style mustard
4 sprigs fresh thyme

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.

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.

*For a non-alcoholic alternative: replace the bourbon with 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract.
