  • 10 pound spiral ham I used a bone-in ham
  • 20 ounces canned pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves or whole cloves

Brown Sugar Honey Glaze (optional)

  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter


  • ***Quick notes before shopping - I usually buy a spiral cut ham. A spiral cut ham is already precut and it leaves the hard part of cutting out. If your ham is not precut, simply use a sharp knife to make thin cut slices on ham before getting started. Also, be sure to buy a fully cooked ham (package should say), as most are traditionally sold this way. 
    Place unwrapped ham cut side down in slow cooker. The cut flat side will be submerged in liquid.
    Pour in 20 ounces canned pineapple chunks. 
    Sprinkle top with 1 cup packed light brown sugar.
    Sprinkle in 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves or 1/4 teaspoon whole cloves.
    Secure slow cooker cover on top. If the lid won't fit, simply cover the top with foil. After an hour or two, the top may be able to fit as it heats up.
    Turn on slow cooker. Either set on low for 5-5 1/2 hours OR high for 2-3 hours. Since ham comes cooked, we're just warming it up. 
    Remove ham to cutting board. Cut up and serve or glaze it first. To make this glaze ( optional ) melt 3 tablespoons butter. Stir in brown sugar and honey then use a pastry brush to glaze. ham.
