I've done this. Brown sugar, no water, absolutely fine.

But it tasted rank and I'll never do it again.

You don't need to add water, there is water in the ham.

I use a "gammon joint".

Thank you. Does it have to be brown sugar? I only have white.

When you say ham, is a little gammon too salty?

What kind of soup do you make?

Do you turn the ham? Do you have to sear it first?

I did it yesterday.

Bung the ham in the slow cooker, chuck some brown sugar over the top, turn it on, wait for ages.

You'll be left with some hammy water in the bottom that is a good base for soup.

No water at all.

The ham has water in it, it will leak out.

I have sugar. I have ham. I have a slow cooker. But I have no faith. It won't work will it. I will be left with a burnt out slow cooker and inedible ham.

Explain it to me. Words of one syllable. Really no water at all. Sugared water, I could accept.
