Slow Cooker Ham in Cider Gravy

Servings: 4-8


This slow-cooked ham in cider gravy was originally published on Savvy Eats.

Autumnís Harvest Farm produces mini hams that are the perfect size for this recipe. By the end of the cooking time, the ham will be so tender that it will flake apart as you slice it. The slices may not be perfectly neat, but smaller pieces just provide more surface area for the cider gravy.



1 1-to-4-pound ham
2 cups unsweetened apple cider
3/4 cups maple syrup
3 tablespoons cornstarch

Cooking Method

1. Place the ham in a slow cooker and cover with the cider and syrup. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
2. Transfer the ham to a plate. Pour the liquid into a four-cup measuring container.
3. Whisk the cornstarch with 1⁄2 cup of the reserved liquid on the stovetop over low heat until smooth. Increase the heat to medium-low. Whisking continuously, add the rest of the liquid a little bit at a time, until itís fully incorporated. Keep whisking as the gravy bubbles, until it is thickened, about 3-5 minutes. Serve with the ham.
