Lemon-lime soda is the secret ingredient in this easy slow cooker recipe. The ham is topped with a delicious homemade spiced honey mustard sauce. Try it with sweet potato biscuits.

"This easy recipe result in a sweet and warmly spiced ham thanks to the cinnamon and cloves. Don't use a pre-sliced ham or it's prone to drying out. The glaze soaks into the meat during the last 30 minutes of cooking. Next time, I'll make a bit more glaze to serve with the ham." —Danielle Centoni
