Sticky Cola Baked Ham

THIS MEAT IS SO MOREISH YOU LITERALLY WON’T BE ABLE TO STOP EATING IT!

Rinse and dry the gammon, no need to pre soak overnight.
Place the gammon into your Crock-Pot Slow Cooker bowl. Pour over the cola, this should more or less cover the gammon. Add the bay leaves and star anise. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours or High for 6-7 hours.
Remove the gammon carefully from the bowl, you may find it easier to tip away some for the liquid first. Preheat your oven to 200°c
Remove the top layer of rind/fat from the gammon. Score a criss cross pattern over the remaining fat.
Place the gammon onto an ovenproof baking sheet.
Mix together the glaze ingredients, spoon this over the gammon.
Bake in a hot oven for approx 15 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly before serving.
