About this recipe: When cooked overnight in the slow cooker and finished off briefly the following day, this ham slices easily. The flavour is great for anyone who likes a sweet and sour taste and is especially delicious sliced cold for a fabulous summer salad or any barbecue type buffet.

I have tried this using cola but one Sunday when I had the meat but no cola, I had ginger ale and long life pineapple juice, so I developed the idea slightly. The taste is more subtle but my family loved it. Also, it's really inexpensive but tastes luxurious.
