Brown Sugar and Honey Slow Cooker Ham

Slow Cooker Spiral Ham Dinner

You already know by now that I have a pretty serious relationship with my Crockpot. I tend to use my Crockpot to make slow cooker meals 3 or 4 nights a week. I love how much time it saves me and how, just by combining a few ingredients, we end up with a delicious, flavorful meal. I tend to host many holiday dinners for my family, and usually at least twice a year make a ham as one of the main courses. So imagine how happy I was last year to discover how simple it is to slow cook a HAM and how succulent the end result is!

For this recipe, you can use a spiral-sliced or non-spiral sliced ham, your choice. Also remember – typical hams are pre-cooked. Your task is basically just to heat it up. Read the label on your ham to ensure that it is pre-cooked – that’s the kind that we use.

You will need:

  • 1 pre-cooked ham
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 Cups brown sugar
  • honey
  • 1/2 Cup water

How to make:

1. Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Layer the bottom of slow cooker with brown sugar.  Save about 1/2 of the brown sugar to sprinkle on top of the ham.

3. Place ham cut-side-down in the slow cooker.  If your ham is too big you can always hack off a piece here or there to make it fit.  Stick the cut pieces down along the side, wherever you can find a spot.

5. Coat top of ham with the remaining brown sugar.

6.  Add 1/2 Cup water to the bottom of slow cooker.  This will help keep the ham from drying out.  Turn slow cooker on low and cook for 4-6 hours (until ham is heated through).

We used the same recipe on a spiral-sliced ham on Christmas Eve and here’s how that one turned out:
