Notes and Tips

  • For best flavor, discard the glaze packet that came with the ham and use the recipe below.
  • Add up to ½ cup pineapple juice, if desired. Liquid is not added to the slow cooker, and the ham will release juices.
How long to cook the ham?

A smoked ham should be cooked to a temperature of 140°F on a meat thermometer. This will take 4-5 hours on low for an 8-10lb ham. Make sure the ham is not overcooked, or it won't be tender. This recipe uses spiral ham that is smoked (fully cooked).

How much ham per person?

When buying ham, consider:
1/4 – 1/3 lb. Boneless ham per person
1/3 – 1/2 lb. Bone in ham per person

If the ham is large enough to cover the lid completely, cover the slow cooker with foil and place the lid on top of the foil to seal in the heat.
Be sure to check your package to make sure the ham is smoked/fully cooked. The package will tell you what temperature the ham needs to reach.
Apple jelly can be substituted With apricot jam/jelly, apple butter, or even orange marmalade.
If using a hem that is not a spiral hem, I recommend scoring the hem.
