Growing up ham was a staple at every holiday meal and family get together. My great-grandfather was a hog farmer who never showed up for an event without his special ham concoctions-smoked, salted, or baked! As I’m looking forward to Christmas I thought I would share with you my own Slow Cooker Honey Glazed Hame recipe. Yes, you heard me right-you can make it in the slow cooker! It’s perfect for holiday meals where prep can get hectic-just ten minutes of stove time and you’ll have honey ham perfection waiting a few hours later! (And I have a cute DIY Christmas Tree place card tutorial for you too!)
This recipe is great because it’s easily adjusted depending on how many you are serving. I use about a two-pound ham when feeding just my family but depending on the size of your slow cooker you could greatly increase the amount of ham you cook as long as it fits comfortably in the cooker. (You want to be able to slightly separate the slices to allow the glaze to get inside.) If you buy a very large ham you can double the glaze but otherwise, the cook time in the slow cooker will remain the same since we are using precooked ham.
