Slow Cooker Cottage Ham is one of my recipes of the day with the From Our Dinner Table blogging group.

We post on Sundays on various topics. This week we are doing the slow cooker. I  am posting another version of cottage ham that I like to do  in the crockpot. This type of food hails from my husband’s family and  his mom. I don’t recall my mom doing this type of recipe. But we lived much further south and had a few different food traditions.

The cottage ham, which they knew as smoked butt, is a smoked version of pork shoulder or butt. The flavor is a lot like ham. But the size of the meat is quite a bit smaller, only a couple pounds or so.

I cook these in the slow cooker the same way I might do a plain ham or something like corned beef. It is a very simple meal and great for those who don’t like spicy. Still, I will serve horseradish and/or grainy mustards as condiments. As that is what we like to do. French bread is great with this, and that’s about it. Unless you care for something easy like a salad.

Or perhaps you like to save your cooking and baking energy for dessert!
