If you avoid cooking ham because you hate when it gets tough and dry - this recipe is going to change your life. When cooked properly, ham is actually sweet and juicy. So, it only makes sense to pair it with succulent oranges and tangy balsamic to play off its natural flavor pallet.
The recipe below is fresh yet savory. Plus, it's easy enough to whip up before a family gathering or as a weeknight treat. By cooking the ham in the slow cooker it's going to keep all that moisture right inside where it needs to be. Plus, the ham is going to absorb that amazing glaze right to the bone. Believe us, low and slow is the way to go when it comes to ham.
