Ham in slow cooker (4)

     What’s that you say? You want ham and it’s 90° outside?  Of course that’s too flippin’ hot to turn the oven on.  What’s a person to do?  Cook the ham in your slow cooker, of course.  5 minutes preparation and you’re on your way to fun in the sun instead of being tied down in the kitchen all day.

Here’s how to prepare it:


6-7 lb ham (boneless, spiral, or bone-in)

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup real maple syrup

1 large can pineapple slices in own juice

1 cup liquid, your choice of: water, pineapple juice, orange juice.  (I love to use the Ocean Spray Cranberry blends.  I’ve used Cran blueberry, Cran pomegranate, Cran raspberry, etc.  If it sounds good, it probably will be.)


Place 1 cup liquid in bottom of crock pot.  Add ½ cup brown sugar and lay ham on top, flat side down.

Drizzle liquid from pineapple slices and maple syrup over the top of the ham, allowing it to run down the sides.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Internal temp should be around 140° F
