Yields12 ServingsTotal Time8 hrs 20 mins

 1 bone-in fully cooked ham (about 5.5 pounds)
 1 cup apple cider
 0.50 cup dark brown sugar
  cup bourbon (Kentucky)

Place the ham in a large slow cooker. Whisk the cider with brown sugar, bourbon, honey, and mustard. Slowly pour over the ham, then scatter thyme into the slow cooker.


Cook, on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 8 hours, until very tender. Remove ham to rest on a cutting board.
