For all of the holidays that we enjoy ham dinners, this is our very favorite recipe! The glaze is absolutely PERFECT!
Savory brown sugar, fresh pineapple juice, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar and honey melt into an AMAZING glaze for this family favorite recipe!
This wonderful holiday ham cooks quickly and easily in your slow cooker, leaving your oven free for other wonderful side dishes!
As with most cuts of meat, a bone-in ham is likelier to stay juicy, but boneless ham works well too. ( I prefer a cottage ham when serving for a crowd.) You can also use a spiral-cut ham, but it will dry out faster than a whole, uncut ham. You can always baste over spiral slices a few times while cooking and slightly reduce the cooking time to ensure a moist ham.
Keep in mind that each time you remove a slow cooker's lid, you may need to compensate for lost heat with additional cooking time. And always let your ham rest before coating with a final brush of glaze before serving. This is the most flavorful and moist ham that you will EVER have!
And if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers, this makes for some divine sandwiches the next day!
