Crock-Pot Ham (Easy Holiday Recipe Idea)
Cooking a ham for 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.
Use the glaze packet that comes with your ham or make this EASY four ingredient orange and clove glaze that is DELICIOUS!
Hip 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.

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

Ham is one the easiest holiday meals to prepare, and making one in the slow cooker is convenient and YUMMY!
My favorite ham flavors are orange and clove 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.
