Ham is significantly underrated these days, don’t you think?
It’s such a versatile piece of meat that basically can fit into any meal of choice. Think about it for a second. There are ham sandwiches, ham and potato soup, ham and bean soup, ham fried rice, ham and scalloped potatoes, ham and cheese roll ups, ham and swiss crepes, and ham quiche. Ham, ham, ham!
I feel obliged to mention that I literally feel like I have tried almost every single way to make one. Hubby loved his mom’s recipe and she did give it to me years ago. However, the hustle and bustle of life caused me to accidentally lose it. Even though it’s lost, I can definitely tell you that he loves pineapple and cloves in his, which leads us to this recipe.
Hams are basically pre-cooked already, however, this particular recipe has it marinating in the slow cooker with all the yummy juices. You can seriously just throw everything in there and tend to whatever it is you have planned for the day.
You’re going to start with 2 or 3 cans of Pineapple Slices. I have two cans in this photo, however, I ended up adding another one after I took this picture.
Now go print out this recipe and make it for your family today 🙂
Serving Size: 2 pieces
- 4 to 6 pound ham; bone-in or out; pre-sliced or not
- 24 oz. can of Pineapple slices
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, light or dark
- 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Separate the pineapple slices from the juice in all the cans. Place the juices in a small mixing bowl.
Add the 1/3 cup of brown sugar and the 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves to the reserved pineapple juice. Whisk and stir until well combined.
Place the ham inside the slow cooker warmer. Drizzle the pineapple juice mixture over the outside of the hame.
Take the pineapple slices and place them all around the ham.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours
This recipe can be made in the oven, however, it’s wonderful to make in the slow cooker during the holidays due to the space it saves in the oven.
