crock-pot ham recipe

Cooking a ham for Easter?

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.

slow cooker ham recipe

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.

      Ah that’s so sweet ! My kids like to help also 👍🏻

    Do you ever put a whole turkey in the crockpot?

    • Lina D

      Yes I’ve done a turkey breast in my slow cooker – it’s yummy as well.

    • Ashley

      We actually did that this year. We stuffed the whole turkey inside the crockpot lol. It came out great.

    • Renee

      Yes, for 2 years! I put aluminum foil around the edges where there is a gap between the lid and pot. It took 8 hours for a 12 pound turkey to cook on low.

    Ill have to try this glaze. Usually I use pineapple and Cherries with a touch of Smoked paprika. But I think that the Orange and cloves will be a nice change.

    • Lina D

      Great! Enjoy 😋

  5. Mama

    Thanks, I did ours in the Crock-Pot and made a glaze with brown sugar and pineapple juice. I want to give yours a try, too….it looks really good.

  6. olgraygirl

    I can almost smell it–I’m all over this on Christmas Day, when we always have a spiral sliced ham. Thanks so much!!

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome – enjoy!

  7. Seberina Thrush

    Would a non-spiral sliced ham work?

  8. Rhanda

    My daughter doesn’t like any glaze at all on the ham. Would it be okay to cook this without the glaze or would I need to add some sort of liquid?

  9. JES

    Thank you. We have a family lake house and when we are all there, we have 12 people. We are always looking for things to cook in the crock pot, so we can spend more time outside and not heat the whole house by using to oven. And it can also be difficult to find something that one of the families has not eaten already that week. Never thought of using it to cook a ham. Thanks again, this will added to the rotation.

    In Sundays Pressure Cooking Today dot com, she lists how to use your Instant Pot pressure cooker to cook your spiral ham. Moisture stays in longer accordingly.

  11. Heidy

    It looks good and so easy to make thanks for sharing it

  12. LC

    Yum! I can’t wait to try this!

    • Lina D

      You’ll love it!!
