I have to say I will never make a ham any other way after making this delicious Slow Cooker Crock Pot Ham Recipe. Oh, my goodness this so easy and turned out amazing!
John’s Mom was over for Slow Cooker Saturday lunch and loved it. John has been enjoying the leftovers and said they are amazing. All you need is a spiral ham, pineapple juice, brown sugar and maple syrup to make this great holiday ham.
This Crock Pot Ham takes minutes to prepare and you get to serve a wonderful dinner! So easy to make and always turns out so good!
Crock Pot Ham
This ham is so moist and juicy. John enjoyed it on sandwiches and with eggs and cheese for a few days after I made it. It kept great in the fridge. I think next time I make it I will slice it for sandwiches and put it in the freezer so we have it for John’s lunches.
I used part of the leftovers to make breakfast sandwiches that I froze. Just make up some biscuits, slice cheese and pieces of this ham and you have a quick and easy breakfast.

What to make with leftover ham?
How long does it take to cook a Ham?
We normally cook a ham in the slow cooker for 4 to 5 hours. This gives the ham time to absorb the pineapple juice and brown sugar and become super flavorful.
Can Cats eat Ham?
Are you wondering if you cat can eat ham? Everything we have seen says that ham is ok for cats as long as they are healthy. You may want to check with your vet if your cat has had any health problems.
The sodium in the ham could pose a problem. We have six cats and I have to say they all would love it if we let them have ham when I make this great slow cooker ham. I have to keep them off the counter and away from the ham when I am surving it.
Who can blame them when the house smells so good!
I found this pomegranate and pineapple ham recipe I need to try next time! YUM!
