Slow Cooker Ham
1 6# bone-in-country ham
30 whole cloves
3 c. apple cider, or more
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. maple syrup
2 TB. ground cinnamon
1 TB. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. ground ginger
2 TB. ground cloves
1 TB. vanilla extract (optional)
1 orange's peel
1.  Press whole cloves into the ham so they are evenly distributed.  You may score the ham for easier insertion if you wish.  Place the ham in a crock pot.  Pour in apple cider until only about 2" of ham is above the surface.  Pack the brown sugar on top of the ham, pressing into the cloves.  This will get washed away in the next step but any that stays on is a bonus.
2.  Pour the maple syrup over the ham.  Season the apple cider with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, ground cloves and vanilla.  Add the orange peel to the pot.  Fill the crock pot as full as you can with apple cider without going over fill line.  Cover and set to Low.  Cook for 8 to 10 hours.
Note:  I used a precooked and presliced bone-in-ham to speed things up and left it in crockpot for 7 hours on low.  Delicious!  Smells good too!!
