Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Honey Ham

Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Honey Ham
Staff Writer

A ham in your slow cooker? Oh yes! I'm here to tell you folks, this is the way to go! It was perfectly cooked and might I add, delicious! It was the perfect balance between sweet and salty. I'm not a fan of salty ham. No, seriously. When I go to parties and I find out they are serving ham, I sometimes cringe. To make this ham extra special, my "secret" ingredient was the ground cloves. It added that little extra "something" to this ham and it was awesome! You're going to love this!

In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and ground cloves. Place about ¼ cup of the mixture in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place the ham on top of the brown sugar mixture, flat side down.

Drizzle the honey over the top. Pat the rest of the brown sugar mixture all over the ham. Cook on low for 4 hours. You may want to baste it a few times the last hour or so. Slice and enjoy!


Note: Don't overcook the ham — it's already cooked, we're just heating it through. You don't want to serve a dry ham!
