Cooking a ham over the holidays?

Free up space in the oven and cook a spiral cut ham in your slow cooker this year! It will be the most tender ham EVER! Plus, this is a completely stress-free meal idea that’s perfect for entertaining over the holidays.

Use the glaze packet that comes with your ham or make this EASY four ingredient orange and clove glaze that is DELICIOUS!

Tip: Make sure your ham will fit the size of your slow cooker. I have an oval shaped 6 quart slow cooker, and an 8 pound bone in, spiral sliced ham fit well.

Easy Crock-Pot Ham

Skip the oven this year and make a juicy, delicious glazed ham right in your slow cooker!

Serves: 14

Prep Time: 10 minutes




  • Step 1:

    Place ham in a large 6 quart slow cooker.

  • Step 2:

    Whisk together glaze ingredients in a saucepan on the stove and bring to simmer. Cook for a few minutes to thicken.

  • Step 3:

    Pour glaze over ham, making sure to separate slices a little so it can go through ham.

  • Step 4:

    Close lid and set on LOW for 4-5 hours. Baste ham a few times if possible.

  • Step 5:

    Serve with glaze, if desired. Keep leftovers in covered container for up to 5 days in fridge.

Ham is one the easiest holiday meals to prepare, and making one in the slow cooker is convenient and YUMMY!

Orange and clove is our favorite ham flavor and this recipe and cooking method resulted in a tender, juicy ham with lots of great citrus flavor. My family loved it, and the leftovers were just as delicious!

Feel free to improvise on the glaze to make your own version. For instance, my mom makes a version with a little defrosted orange juice concentrate and whole cloves pressed in the top of ham.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
