Kalua-style ham

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
16 pounds Smoked ham; (up to 20)
12 larges Ti leaves; (up to 15)
2 larges Sheets heavy foil

Notes: From Hawaiian Electric Kitchen.

Trim skin and fat from ham, if desired. Wash ti leaves; remove stems and fibrous part of the veins. Place sheets of foil crosswise in a large baking pan. Put ti leaves on foil with leaves radiating from the center and extending about 10 inches out of the pan. Place ham on leaves. Bring leaves and foil up and around ham. Seal foil tightly around ham. Bake in electric oven at 350°F for 8 hours. Shred ham before serving. Makes about 24 servings.

To cook in a slow cooker: Cut ham to fit pot. Omitting ti leaves, place ham in crock pot. Start on "high" for 5 hours; reduce to "low" and cook for about 2 hours, or until ham easily shreds.
