Slow Cooker Ham with Cider Gravy

Serves 8

20131019-215811.jpg

1 (4 pound) ham – $14.90
2 cups apple cider, unsweetened – $.96
3/4 cups pure maple syrup – $6.90
3 tablespoons cornstarch – $.04

Grand Total – $22.80
Per Serving Cost – $2.85

Prep Day: Freeze ham and cider.

Serve Day: Thaw ham. Place the ham in a crockpot and cover with the cider and syrup. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.

Transfer the ham to a plate. I find it easiest to move all the liquid to a large 4-cup measuring cup to more easily add liquid to the gravy a bit at a time.

Whisk the cornstarch with 1/2 cup of the ham cider juice on the stove-top over low heat until smooth. Increase the heat to medium-low. Whisking continuously, add the ham cider juice a little bit at a time, until it is all in the gravy. Keep whisking as the gravy bubbles until it is thickened. Serve with the ham.
