How to cook ham in the slow cooker with zero effort. Then get it in the oven, slathered in mustard, honey and sugar, to crisp up. Irresistible.

Buyer's guide

English mustard powder and prepared English mustard is available in cans from most UK supermarkets.


Keep in a dry place. The powder is ideal for travelling with or taking on camping trips.


Mix the powder with cold water to the desired consistency before use. Serve with cooked charcuterie, or add to sauces, casseroles, vinaigrettes and mayonnaise. Alternatively, rub prepared mustard powder over rabbit, fish, chicken, pork or beef before cooking. Use this preparation in recipes where the sharpness of the vinegar in bottled mustard would ruin the flavour balance of the finished dish.
