Maple Brown Sugar Ham in the Slow Cooker

I keep coming back to this recipe every holiday we make a ham.  It tastes fabulous and it's just so nice to have more oven space for roasting veggies and baking rolls.  

INGREDIENTS:
7-8 pound bone-in spiral-cut ham
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup all natural maple syrup (yes, please use pure maple syrup and not pancake syrup)
2 cups pineapple juice

DIRECTIONS:
Use a 6-7 quart slow cooker. Unwrap the ham and discard flavor packet. Place the ham into the slow cooker stoneware, flat-side down. Rub brown sugar on all sides. Pour on maple syrup and pineapple juice. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. An hour before serving, baste ham with the collected juices from the bottom of the slow cooker. When cooking is done, remove carefully and let it rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes before carving.

  1. I made this for our Easter dinner today and it was a huge hit with my family and our guests. I got lots of compliments. Thank you for sharing. We'll definitely be doing our ham like this again. It was delicious!
