This is a great option for large family gatherings when your oven is being used for other dishes. 10/18/2006 I am sure this is a great recipe from all the reviews.
The problem I had been I have a small crock pot, so I purchased a 3 lb picnic ham which to my delight fit perfectly in my crock pot. I had no idea how to adjust the time difference, so I figured 3-4 hours on low.
At 3 1/2 hrs it was brown and tough and in the garbage. So I just wanted to write this to help someone in the same predicament.
03/22/2006 Just be sure to buy a picnic ham (picnic shoulder or pork shoulder? By mistake, I used a bone-in smoked ham & this was weird.
It turned dark brown and fell apart. Wish recipe had stated to NOT use a traditional smoked ham for us who don't normally buy non-traditional pork cuts.
Soon easy, and it turned out excellent. My husband wanted ham for Thanksgiving, and I knew the oven would be in use, so I wanted a slowcookerrecipe.
I used a 2½ pound boneless ham, so I cut the brown sugar down to around 3/4 of a cup (½ cup in the bottom of the slow cooker and 1/4 cup rubbed on the ham). I flipped it around periodically while cooking so all sides would be evenly coated, plus I basted it once in a while with the brown sugar syrup.
I used a shank-end spiral-sliced ham and was able to squeeze it into my 7 qt slow cooker by laying it sideways and kind of squishing it in (the spiral slicing made it kind of flexible). I can't wait to try this recipe with a non spiral-sliced ham.
Just a turkey wasn't going to be enough meat for Thanksgiving this year, so being able to cook a ham on the counter and not worry about oven space was a blessing! I studded the ham with whole cloves and laid pineapple rings on top of it as my mom does and added the juice to the brown sugar mixture on the bottom.
My guests were in love with the way my house smelled, and by the end of the night there was turkey left over, but not a bit of ham ! I grew up on a hog farm, so I've eaten my fair share of it too.
It was so juicy and tender, I had to serve it with a spoon because it just fell apart! My husband absolutely loved it and said that I better hold on to this recipe.
I am a slow cooker novice, and the fact that this recipe had no liquid scared me a little, so I did add a little water to the brown sugar at the bottom to make it soupy, and only used a cup and a half of brown sugar. I don't think I would have needed to though, there was a lot of liquid from the ham.
Thumb Up(506) Angie Ablating Hendrickson Ham without a bone and it still turned out great in my small crock pot with 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar.
Thumb Up(357) Rating: 4 stars 02/27/2007 I'm Australian, so I have to use a 2.5 kilosemi-boneless shoulder ham from Coolies.
I was worried that one ham and no liquid would result in burnt sugar all over the crock pot, so I added one little juice box of tropical juice and only used 1 cup of brown sugar. This worked beautifully, and the ham was fully cooked (i.e. the ham bone pulled out)after 7 hours.
My ham didn't quite fit in the crock pot, to I tightly covered the top of the crackpot with aluminum foil and rested the lid on top, and it cooked just fine. I will definitely use this one again, especially at holidays when you need the oven for something else.
Not only is it simple, fast, and easy to put together, but it's perfect for a busy weekday. I turn on the slow cooker before I leave for work and it's ready when we get home.
1 This is my simple version of pinto beans and ham. Just put the ingredients in your slow cooker before going to bed, and it will be ready for breakfast.
16 Great for finishing off that holiday ham that just won't quit! The third asked for no beans and shrimp which was easy to filter out in his bowl.
Overall a success considering it was a week out from daily doses of Easter ham. 15 Easy slow cooker potato soup with ham.
Perfect for a wintry day and makes the house smell delicious. Serve with buttered toast and follow with warm apple pie.
33 My friend gave me this recipe for a hot, easy appetizer. 5 They say the key to a good Cuban sandwich is soft bread; we say Ball Park® Buns fit the bill.
10 Being Russian Mennonite, I grew up eating Varnish (Cheese Pockets). I recently was given this great recipe for the slowcooker, so I don't have to spend the time to make the yummy goodness.
Serve this over rice for a delicious alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey and stuffing. I recommend serving it in an Italian bread bowl (search this site) with a dollop of sour cream and some mild Cheddar cheese.

I highly recommend buying it precooked because it’s faster and convenient and get the crackpot to do all the work. You also won’t occupy the oven and keep it free for all the other food and sides that you need to prepare for the holiday party.
Among all the recipes I have tried, this one has the best and most balanced sweet, spicy and smoky flavor. Add half the brown sugar and spices in the beginning and the remaining amount near the end.
Add a sprig of thyme and sage to infuse even more flavor and aroma into the ham. In the worst case scenario, cover the slow cooker tightly with heavy-duty foil paper.
Don’t keep opening the lid because that causes heat to escape and it will take longer for the ham to cook/heat up. To make a thick glaze that you can brush on top of the ham, remove the juices from crock pot and strain it through a sieve into a nonstick saucepan.
Dissolve 1-2 tbsp of cornstarch in water and add that slurry in the juices and keep whisking until mixture thickens. Never add cornstarch powder into the juices because that will create disgusting starchy lumps that will not dissolve properly.
