When your oven is being used baking cookies, this is a wonderful recipe for a tender moist ham. I made a 6.5 pound ham with this recipe. It was delicious!


Everything you want in a ham, it’s salty and sweet, very juicy and firm.

In a slow cooker, cook ham for 6 hours on low,  during the last hour, add the brown sugar glaze. Transfer ham into a baking pan, uncovered, into the oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes until browned.


This zippy ham begs to be served with creamy sides (from mac and cheese to green bean casserole).

Pair it with mustard and pickled vegetables for a southern charcuterie platter.


How about serving my Pineapple Casserole with this delicious Slow Cooker Ham? So delicious!

Congratulations, I will be featuring you on Thursday night. I love this recipe! Thank you very much for joining in the celebration of #purebloglove, we enjoy having you each week.
