Maple Brown Sugar Ham

7 Dec

This is such a great crockpot recipe! I was hesitant about buying such a big ham for just the two of us, especially since it was almost $20. My mother in law reminded me about all the things I could do with the leftover ham and then I didn’t feel so bad for buying it. This recipe was great! The flavor is wonderful with the brown sugar, maple syrup, and pineapple juice. The ham was so tender, it just fell right off the bone. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Source: My Kitchen Cafe, adapted  from A Year of Slowcooking


7-8 pound bone in spiral cut ham

1 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup all natural maple syrup (do not use pancake syrup)

2 cups pineapple juice

Use a 6-7 quart slow cooker. Unwrap ham and discard flavor packet. Place ham in slow cooker, flat side down. Rub brown sugar on all sides. Pour on maple syrup and pineapple juice. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. An hour before serving, baste ham with the collected juices from the bottom of the slow cooker. When cooking is done, remove carefully and let rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes before carving.

    That sounds phenomenal. And easy!

    I’m not a big leftover fan but I agree, you can do so much with leftover ham (beside sandwiches). I’ll have to try this!!
