How to Cook a Spiral Ham in the Crockpot


  • 8 pound Spiral Sliced Ham
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 12 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup

Spiral Ham Recipe Ingredients

This recipe literally takes no more than five minutes prep. Start by cutting off the packaging off your Ham and toss away the glaze packet and any other packaging including a bone cover, if one was included. You won’t need any of this since you are making your own glaze and using your crock pot.

Place the ham flat side down in your crock pot.

Now, rub the cup of brown sugar all over the sides and top of the ham coating the outer skin. Next, pour your pineapple juice and maple syrup right on top of the ham. If you don’t have any pineapple juice on hand, you can use pineapple rings and just lay the rings on top of your ham and pour the remaining juices from the can in with your meat. Both ways work well. Keep in mind, you will NOT want to eat the pineapple if you use this method, it will soak up some of the salt from the ham and will not taste good.

Seal up your crock pot and set it to cook on low for 4 hours. When your ham is ready, baste it with the juices left at the bottom of your crock pot and then cut and serve.
