Crockpot Sweet Mustard Glazed Ham

This glazed ham is simple and delicious.  Serve it hot with vegetables and then slice it for salads and sandwiches and dice it for fried rice or omelettes. 

Now is a great time to buy a ham. The unsold Christmas hams are on sale in supermarkets right now and they are an excellent price, much cheaper than the sliced or shaved ham from the deli.  Ham freezes well, either in slices, diced or whole. Buying ham whole on the bone is a very economical way of buying sandwich meat too. Use a very sharp carving knife, an electric knife or a meat slicer (if you are fortunate enough to have one) to shave the meat just like the deli does, you'll save a fortune.

Ingredients:
3kg ham
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
3 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp cold water
1 tbsp cornflour

Method:
Place ham in crockpot. In separate bowl, mix together brown sugar, mustard, and orange juice.  Pour mixture over ham, put cover on crockpot, and cook on HIGH for 1 hour. urn crockpot down to LOW temperature and cook for 6 to 7 hours.  Remove ham from crockpot and keep warm, and turn crockpot to HIGH.Mix cold water and cornflour in small bowl until cornflour is dissolved. Whisk cornflour mixture into drippings in crockpot, cook until sauce begins to thicken, whisking several times. Serve ham with thickened glaze spooned over slices.
