Easter is this week. To me that’s mind blowing. A quarter of our year is already complete–time is flying by way too fast (in my opinion). Today, I’m sharing with you a super simple slow cooker recipe for Brown Sugar Honey Glazed Ham. Yep, a slow cooker recipe–as in you put the ham in the slow cooker and let it do all the work for you! I also made a handy little five minute video so you can see exactly what I did!
First off (thanks to new FTC rules) I made this video in conjunction with KitchenAid. They supplied me with the beautiful 6-Quart Slow Cooker (and they sponsored me at a conference last year). I’d love for you to watch my video and see just how easy it is to make my Brown Sugar Honey Glazed Ham in the slow cooker.
First off, I’m proud of this video. I went from 14 minutes of footage down to five. Anyone who has ever edited a video knows how extremely hard it is to cut footage. Second, I’m damn proud of this ham. You see I’ve never been one to really enjoy ham. I’ll have a few bites but that’s it. So when I made this ham and proceeded to eat a full piece (I know some may think that is pathetic but to me this is a huge accomplishment), I knew this ham was damn good. I’m not gonna lie, I think the Brown Sugar Honey Glaze helped the ham… a lot!
Cooking ham in the slow cooker is ideal for a holiday dinner or even a special Sunday Supper. I love the idea that my slow cooker is doing all the work for me (and making it smell like I’ve been cooking all day long). So the next time a ham makes the menu (whether its this weekend or any time in the future), make sure you give it a try in the slow cooker… it cooks to perfection and frees you up of pressure time!
Katie Original Recipe
- 1 6.5lb bone-in ham
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground clove
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 cup honey
- Place a slow cooker bag in a 6qt slow cooker. Then place the ham flat side down in the slow cooker. If the ham is too tall for the slow cooker, run your knife on the top of the slow cooker trimming away excess meat (place the excess meat in the slow cooker).
- In a medium-sized bowl mix brown sugar, cinnamon, ground clove, and nutmeg together. Rub the brown sugar mixture on the ham until its all used. Then drizzle 1/4 cup honey on top of the ham. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 8-10 hours on low or 4-6 on high.
- Remove the cooked ham from the slow cooker, carefully trim, and pour additional brown sugar honey glaze on top of ham.
Disclosure: I received the KitchenAid Slow Cooker for review and cooking purposes. KitchenAid sponsored me at a conference in 2012 and thus I am creating a series of videos for them. As always, all opinions are my own.
