Crock Pot Ham

My favorite way to make a holiday ham is in the crock pot. It comes out juicy and tender every time! It has a simple brown-sugar pineapple glaze that is simple to make for an effortless holiday ham.

  • 8-10 lbs. spiral-cut ham
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup pineapple juice place pineapple chunks or slices around the ham, last 30 minutes


  • Remove ham from its packaging. Discard flavoring package if it comes with one, you don't need it.
  • Place ham flat-sit down in a 7+ quart crock pot/slow cooker. 
  • Rub and press in the brown sugar all of the top and side of the ham.
  • Then pour the maple syrup and pineapple juice over the top of the ham.
  • Turn on the crock pot to low, place lid on and cook for 2-3 hour. I suggest checking the temperature at 2 hours. Once it has reached 140° F hours on low heat spoon juices over the ham, add pineapple slices or chunks from the can and cook on low for an additional 30 minutes or until ham reaches 145° F.
  • Remove ham from slow cooker, let it rest for 3-5 minutes then slice and serve!
