Slow Cooker Crockpot Spiral Ham

You can’t really screw up a ham. And when you toss it into a crockpot, it really feels like cheating. I’ve been wanting to try cooking a Crockpot Spiral Ham for awhile and I’m glad I gave it a try. This Crockpot ham recipe calls for pineapple and brown sugar so it definitely comes out tasting sweet – perhaps like a Honey Baked ham? I’m only guessing since I’ve never had one.

INGREDIENTS

Spiral Ham with glaze packet
You would ideally want it to fit in your slow cooker. Mine was about 10 pounds in a 6 quart crockpot.

Pineapple bits in can, with juice, 20 oz

2 Cups brown sugar

1 Cup Ginger Ale

How to prepare

1.) Line the bottom of the crockpot with two cups of brown sugar. Some recipes call for three, that seems like an awful lot.

2.) Place ham, slices down (flush with the flat bottom of the crock)

3.) Sprinkle the ham glaze powder (comes with most spiral hams) over the ham

4.) Pour full can of pineapple bits into crockpot with juice. Pouring over the ham and glaze powder.

5.) Pour a cup of Ginger Ale over the ham

6.) Place lid on top of ham and cook on low for 4-6 hours until it’s heated through
If the ham is too big to fit in the crockpot, you can cover it with aluminum foil – for a makeshift lid. Or you can cut off the top part of the ham and shove it into the side of the crockpot. Whatever works – as long as it can be covered.

7.) Serve with some of the juice from the crockpot and it’ll be great!

If you overcook this it will be dry. Basically you want to give it enough time to soak up some of the juice and heat up! Don’t even think about putting it on anything higher than low. And don’t go playing with it – the more you move it around the more it’s likely to shred and break apart.
