Before I get started, Zach wrote a blog post on the difference between slow cookers and pressure cookers. It was inspired by a question I received and he really wanted to answer it, apparently. 😛
I’ve had posts backed up for…months. Mostly posts that I kept forgetting to write or just didn’t feel like writing. Over the weekend, Zach and I sat down at the kitchen table with our laptops so we could both try to get some work done…and I discovered that I had over twelve posts that I hadn’t written yet. Including this one…from our Easter dinner. Whoops!
I believe I mentioned this, but we decided to combine Easter with TableTop Day, so we had Easter dinner a day early. Naturally, we made a small ham. I meant to do an apple cider ham, but couldn’t find apple cider. So I used Simply Apple, instead. Yum!
To the recipe!
What you’ll need:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter (or coconut oil)
- 2-3 lb ham (presliced is perfectly fine)
- 3 cups Simply Apple
- 1 apple, cored and quartered
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp allspice
Step 01 CP: Combine all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.
Step 01 PC: In a pressure cooker (yes, I am addicted), heat the oil and butter on “brown.” Place the ham in the cooker and add Simply Apple, salt, apple slices, and allspice. Lock the lid and cook on “high” for 65 minutes.
Step 02 PC: Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before doing a quick release.
Step 03 PC: Remove and let sit for 10 minutes under aluminum foil. Slice and serve!
In my haste to eat dinner, I forgot to take more pictures. 😛 But this was delicious.
