Crockpot Spiral-Cut Ham Recipe!
Good afternoon, savvy savers! With Easter approaching next month, I wanted to share with you my recipe for Crockpot Ham! I shop and purchase my ham at the same time that I purchase my New Year’s Ham, in mid November, and freeze it until needed; this cuts down on my out-of-pocket holiday rush-pricing. As well, the other ingredients you may have on hand, or can be purchased at your local Dollar Tree. I can make this dish for under $15.00, and it serves 12. The above photo was of last year’s ham, after being taken out of the crockpot, and it was awesome! Here’s how I make it:

6 hr 30 min
6 hr 30 min
- 1 (6 pound) bone-in country-style spiral cut ham
- 30 whole cloves
- 3 cups apple juice
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 tablespoons ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 maraschino cherries
- 1 can pineapple rings, with juice.
- 1/2 cup dijon mustard
- 1 orange’s peel
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- The night before serving, take 1 cup brown sugar, a dash of salt, pepper, and a half a cup dijon mustard, and make a rub. Using the rub, slather this mixture on the ham, then wrap in saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.
- On a baking sheet, place your prepped ham, spiral cut sides up. Under the broiler setting on your stove, bake 25 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly on top; the ham should have a slight crust, but not be burnt.
- Next, remove the ham from the oven and place it in your crockpot.
- Now, taking your spices, vanilla extract, pineapple and apple juice, to make a sauce, and then set to the side.
- Next place the pineapple rings on top of the ham, along with the cherries and cloves.
- Now carefully put your mixture around the base of the ham, then cook on low for 8 hours.
- When the ham is finished, reserve the pineapple, cherries, and closes to the side for garnish on a platter. As well, be sure to strain the mixture from your crockpot, and serve it alongside the ham as an optional glaze and sauce.
