Slow Cooker Copycat Honey Baked Ham

 Find It on Pinterest

Cook's Note: I saw this ham on Pinterest and thought I'd make it for my family, since they all love ham (except for me!) This is the EASIEST HAM to make and bonus is that its in the crock pot. Apparently this is best ham anyone has ever tasted in their entire life! My husband said "This Ham is Amazing"... you just can't get better than that! My entire family devoured this ham in just a few minutes and I have been requested to make this ham now for every special occasion. Many many thanks to The Lady With The Red Rocker for the recipe and technique!

What You Will Need: 

1 bone-in spiral sliced pre-cooked ham (un-sliced also works)
2 cups white granulated sugar
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
1/2 teaspoon paprika
4 Tablespoons water


 Cut the outside of ham into diamond shapes (so that there are slits in the ham where the juice can soak down into) and place in crock-pot. Add about 2 cups of water to bottom of the crock pot. Cook in the crock pot on high for about 3 hours until heated through.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small sauce pan and add enough water until you get a thick syrup (4 Tablespoons seemed to do the trick). Bring the syrup to a boil on the stove and. boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
Remove ham from crock-pot (since I had a small ham, I used large tongs to remove it) and place in a foil lined baking pan. Baste ham with the syrup you just made. Place the ham  in your oven and bake at 500° for 3 minutes until syrup starts to bubble. Now, take out the ham and turn it over with your tongs and bake for another 3 minutes on the other side, spooning the syrup over the ham to distribute it again. Keep an eye on the ham while it is in the oven. Be sure to watch the ham closely while its in the oven because it will burn quickly! Remove ham from the oven when its all brown and beautiful and ENJOY!
