Ham is something that my family traditionally ate only at Easter. Every once in a while, Mom would make it at other times of year. I admit that I don’t eat a lot of it when it is still warm, but there’s nothing better than the leftover ham in a sandwich or as a cold meal the next day. Even better, you can easily make it in your slow cooker, including the sauce! Try it this way and see what you think.
