Does anyone know if this can be done in the slow cooker? How would I need to adapt the recipe? I have never cooked a ham before, and am a bit hit and miss with the slow cooker - things sometimes are too watery.
Is there an easier way to cook ham? I to start it and then get on with other things today so it needs to look after itself really. Thank you

Chuck it on the slow cooker with a can of coke, a can of condensed milk (if you've got some), chilli, garlic and ginger.

Leave all day.

Yum smile

I put it in the slow cooker with cherry coke, or with a carton of a

Ooops, posted too soon! Should say or a carton of apple juice, goes gorgeously tender with either of these. Just leave in slow cooker all day on lowest setting!

Do you brown the meat first or just whang it in?

I just chuck it straight in smile

I just chuck it in with enough coke to cover it - cheap cola does the job!

This is my signature dish...must be full fat, not diet.
Just sling it int slow cooker on low, cover with the coke.....leave then enjoy.
It will literally fall to bits, so so delish nomnomnom.

Does the coke go sticky like a glaze? And should I put the slow cooker on low, med or high? And how long should I leave it? I want it for Boxing Day morning.

I do mine in a stock pot and then use the glaze in the oven. Have you got the nigella recipe Couthy?

CouthyMowEatingBraiiiiinz Sat 22-Dec-12 15:52:46

Nope, I used to use a recipe on here, but can't find it. I've got the gammon, I've got coke, but can't find the recipe!

Think if you google nigella cola ham it comes up. Well, I'm hoping so anyway because I,m sure that's what I did before.

Soak it for 12 hours in water in the fridge, changing the water every couple of hours. This gets lots of the salt out. Then whack in a slow cooker, bottle of coke and some quarters of onion, couple of hours or longer i bees be and it's gorgeous!

Oh and diet coke works just as well, I've found...
