Finishing the slow-cooked ham with plums and lemon -- 3 hours

SET the slow cooker on the lowest setting for about 3 hours. Check if the ham has a temperature of 53 degrees, because the ham should still be rose. REMOVE the ham from the slow cooker, wrap with tin foil and let it rest for about 10 minutes.

You can choose to use a thickening agent for the plum and lemon juice to create a sauce, you can also just use it as it is.
