Fruited Ham Slice (Crockpot)

Food snobs will turn up their nose at this dish because of one certain ingredient--fruit cocktail. But for Gen Xers who grew up believing fruit cocktail helped us meet our daily recommended fruit requirements, this dish is an amusing and yummy nod to earlier times. Definitely a dish for a sweet tooth.

1-1½-pound fully cooked ham slice, 1”-thick
8-10 whole cloves
Prepared mustard
1-pound can fruit cocktail, drained, with 1 cup syrup reserved
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed

Stud (gotta loves recipes that start with that word) edges of ham slice with cloves. Spread top with mustard. Place ham slice in slow cooker. In a bowl, mix together fruit cocktail, 1 cup syrup, and brown sugar. Spoon over ham. Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours, or until ham is heated through but not drying out. (Note: instead of fruit cocktail use 2 cups of any of the following: canned pineapple chunks, sliced peaches, apricot halves)
