Also works with uncooked ham (ie, Gammon joint), Member SnoraNora

You can use these ingredients with an uncooked gammon joint as well in your slow cooker/crock pot. I layer the bottom of the pot with brown sugar and then use only enough cola to make a paste of the brown sugar and mustard powder to cake around the raw joint. I put it in the pot on high for 1 hour and then low for another 5-7 hours depending on the size. Sometimes I'll even turn it over mid-way just to even the flavours out but that's not totally necessary. As it cooks the fat starts to melt and makes the ham nice and juicy (which is why you shouldn't use more than a dab of cola or it'll get soaked). If you overcook it it will turn sort of like brisket, if you get it right it has a wonderful soft texture. When you serve it you can spoon a little bit of the remaining 'glaze/juice' from the bottom of the pot over it. DELICIOUS!
