8 ounces cubed fully cooked country ham or 2 smoked ham hocks (about 1-1/2 pounds)
1 medium onion, chopped
3 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
2 cartons (32 ounces each) chicken broth
In a greased 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Cook, covered, on low 5-6 hours or until vegetables are tender, stirring once. If using ham hocks, remove meat from bones when cool enough to handle; cut ham into small pieces and return to slow cooker. Serve with a slotted spoon.
