Crock Pot Ham

I love to have ham for our Easter dinner – or any dinner for that matter.  Sometimes the oven is so busy that I just don’t have the room and then you find that time is running out.  So, let’s put it in the crock pot. It comes out just perfect!

Serves: 12
Recipe adapted from: https://butterwithasideofbread.com/cooking-your-holiday-ham-in-crock-pot/
Ingredients
  • 2-7 lb ham boneless or bone-in (I use a spiral ham)
  • 1 20- oz can sliced pineapple
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Instructions
  1. Cook your Ham in the Crock Pot:
  2. Place ham in the crock pot. Ham from grocery stores is pre-cooked, so if your ham doesn’t fit, simply cut a portion off and refrigerate it or freeze it for later use.
  3. Open the can of sliced pineapple and drain the juice out into a separate bowl. You will use all of the juice! Measure out your 1/3 cup of brown sugar and add it to the pineapple juice, whisking to dissolve. Add in the 1/2 tsp of ground cloves and whisk to combine.
  4. Arrange the slices of pineapple all over the surface of your ham and in between slices. Place candied cherries inside the pineapple. Pour the pineapple juice mixture on top.
  5. Replace the lid on the crock pot and cook on LOW for 3-5 hours. I had about 7-lbs of my 10lb ham in the crock pot and I cooked mine for 4 hours. It was super moist and had a lovely sweet flavor. Bone-In hams will take 5-6 hours to fully heat up. If you have a smaller, 2-4 lb ham, aim for 2 hours of cooking time.
  6. Cook Ham in the Instant Pot:
  7. Place ham in the Instant Pot. Ham from grocery stores is pre-cooked, so if your ham doesn’t fit, simply cut a portion off and refrigerate it or freeze it for later use.

  9. Arrange the slices of pineapple all over the surface of your ham and in between slices. Place candied cherries inside the pineapple. Pour the pineapple juice mixture on top.
  10. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and make sure pressure valve is closed. Select Manual high pressure and use the ham portion sizes below to set the appropriate time.
  11. lbs-4lbs boneless ham slices: 5-8 minutes in 3 qt or 6 qt Instant Pot
  12. -7lb boneless ham slices: 10-14 minutes in a 6 qt or 8 qt Instant Pot
  13. Smaller bone-in hams can be used in an 8-qt Instant Pot. Cook for 14-17 minutes
