🥣How to Make Slow Cooker Spiral Ham

  1. Make Glaze – Combine the honey, peach preserves, brown sugar, vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then remove from the heat.
  2. Slow Cook the Ham – Put the spiral ham in the slow cooker with the flat side down. Pour about half of the honey brown sugar glaze over the top. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
  3. Add More Glaze – Take the ham out and put it on a baking tray. Reheat the remaining glaze on low and pour it over the ham.
  4. Broil (optional) – If desired, place the ham under the broiler for 5 minutes so the glaze caramelizes on top. Watch to make sure it doesn’t burn.

🍴Serving Ideas

This ham is the perfect choice for holiday gatherings! At Christmas, I serve it with holiday side dishes like mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole. For Easter dinner, I always make potato salad, honey-glazed carrots, asparagus, and cornbread as sides.

Ham is incredibly versatile and goes with whatever your favorite side dishes are. The sky is the limit. Another way I love to serve slow cooker spiral ham is with a whole bunch of make-ahead sides. Orange fluff salad, broccoli salad, and ramen noodle salad go well with ham.

🍲Recipes for Leftover Ham

Here are some great ways to use up leftover ham:

💭How to Store

Store any leftover ham tightly covered in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can reheat it by wrapping it in foil and baking it in a 275-degree F oven for 20 minutes.

🍍Variations

  • This recipe works great with boneless ham, too. Adjust the cooking time to about 2-3 hours on low.
  • You can adjust the heat level for your family by reducing or increasing the amount of red pepper flakes in the glaze.
  • You can make this crock pot spiral ham recipe with any glaze recipe you like, so if you prefer a pineapple glaze or have a traditional family favorite glaze, use that.

⭐Tips

Be sure to check out the step by step instructions

  • Use a crock pot liner to make cleanup easy.
  • Use a meat thermometer to verify the ham has reached 140 degrees F internal temperature before removing it from the slow cooker.
  • Broiling the ham for 5 minutes before serving gives it a fantastic presentation.
  • You will need to reheat the glaze before glazing the ham at the end of the cooking time.

📝FAQ

How much ham do you need per person?

Allow 3/4 pound to 1 pound per person. That allows for generous servings and makes sure there are leftovers.

What if my ham doesn’t fit in my Crock Pot?

You can always cut the ham to make it fit. If it is very close and the lid just doesn’t fit tightly, then you can cover the slow cooker with heavy-duty foil and put the lid on top of the foil.

How long does it take to cook a ham in a slow cooker?

Cooking ham in a slow cooker takes 3-4 hours on low heat. I don’t recommend cooking it on high heat.
