Slow Cooker Spiral ham with pineapples & cherries. My all time favorite ham recipe made easy in the Crock-Pot!
The holidays are creeping up, which means you all are gonna need an amazing ham recipe. Sure, I shared my baked glazed ham recipe last year, but this time I want to share a slow cooker ham recipe. This ham recipe will be extremely similar to my other ham, because we will be using pineapple, cherries, brown sugar & etc. However, there are less steps because we’re just gonna toss all the ingredients in the slow cooker.
How to Make Slow Cooker Spiral Ham for the Holidays
For this recipe I will use a spiral ham, but make no mistake – you can use any ham that you’d like to use, just make sure that it’s fully cooked!
Most hams come with a glaze mix. However I don’t use it, because I like to make my own glaze. My simple glaze for my slow cooker spiral ham consists of brown sugar, honey, mustard, and pineapple juice (or the syrup from the canned pineapples!). I simply combine the ingredients in a large bowl, then I mix everything until it’s well combined. The glaze is then poured over the ham along with pineapples and cherries. Then I cook the ham in my Crock-Pot on LOW for no longer than 3 hours. Anything longer than three hours WILL dry out the ham.
I usually buy a 8-10 pound spiral ham, and I use the slow cooker below.
