Fall is just around the corner and I have to tell you that this is my favorite time of year. I love football, the sounds leaves make when they crumble under your footsteps, the colors, and slow cooker meals. I cook a lot of meals in my slow cooker. It's like magic! I get everything in the Crockpot the night before. Then before I leave for work I turn on the slow cooker. When I walk through the door, I can smell dinner waiting to be eaten! What could be better?
I like my crockpot so much that I posted a picture of it for you.
The recipe I made this week was from the cookbook I got as a present for Christmas this past year. It is called, "Make it Fast, Cook it Slow" by, Stephanie O'Dea. She has some great recipes. If you love slow cooker recipes you should check out her blog called, A Year of Slow Cooking.
Here is the recipe for Maple Ham.
This recipe requires very little prep work. Most of the time I make this on a Sunday, so that when Jon and I get home from church, lunch is ready for us. I always buy a smaller ham and cut the recipe in half or more, because just Jon and I eat it. Sometimes I have not had pineapple juice, as in this case pictured below. I just take any juice I have and add it in place of the pineapple juice. It takes great!
Here is the final product. I like to eat ham with rice and corn, but you could choice any sides you like. The ham does not get dried out which is great. This is such a great recipe!
