Hi, I'm Monte from, and today I wanted to show you something I didn't even know about. I'm going to show you how to cook a ham in a Crock-Pot. It's a wonderful, wonderful way of keeping your oven free for other uses. And what you do is you take a half boneless ham, you can't really do this with you can't do it with a large ham because you can't probably fit it in to your Crock-Pot. What we're doing here is we're just taking my all natural ham which is made without any nitrates or nitrites so it's a delicious smoky flavor that's very much better than conventional ham in terms of wood. And now we're going to score the ham. Now what's wonderful about my particular ham is that they come in a net. They're made in a net so it's very easy to figure out where your score marks are going to go. About an inch apart you want to make these cuts about an inch apart and you want to make them about a quarter of an inch deep into the ham and then you cross cut. You go in the other direction so what you're creating are these places where you will put cloves and what you'll open up and allow the flavor of the glaze to get into the ham. Every ham we sell comes with fancy Madagascar cloves and there's certainly enough for one ham in every single one of these little tins that we send you. So what you do is you take these cloves. We're studding the ham with cloves at the intersection of the lines. So where the score marks meet a clove goes into every one of those. Minimum 12 if I would have to say. We're going to take our ham and we're going to put it into the Crock-Pot and to the ham, we're first going to add one half cup of orange juice. This is very key to keeping a ham moist. It's important in cooking a ham to always keep it moist. Whether you're making it in a Crock-Pot or not. So we add the orange juice because it will not only bring the flavor, but it will keep the ham moist during the cooking process. Every Monte's Ham comes with Monte's ham original glaze. This is a glaze that I invented some years ago and what it is is it's brown sugar, orange marmalade and real Dijon mustard and some spices that I've put together that bring a new dimension and taste and we literally just ladle this on. We're not really glazing this ham, what we're doing is we're just bringing the flavor of the glaze to the ham in the crock pot. OK, now what I'm going to do is I want this ham. Because of the size of this ham, I'm going to turn it over like that. So the face of the ham will actually be sitting in the liquid while it's cooking. Put the top on and now we're going to cook it. And what we're going to do is we're going to cook it on high for one hour. And then after one hour you're going to turn it down to low and cook it the rest of the time. Now you can actually cook this for up to ten hours. But the recommended hour is really seven. Now this is your crock pot ham. Here we've shown you how you can actually cook a half boneless ham, one of our delicious all natural hams in Crock-Pot. You can preferably send this to your child in his dorm room. This is something I'm really proud of. I'm Monte of Monte's Ham, and I've just shown you how to cook a ham in a Crock-Pot.
