Slow Cooker Cranberry Pineapple Ham

Hey yall!!  Time for another Thanksgiving recipe!  This week it is time for the main course!  Now of course there are a thousand turkey recipes floating around and no doubt you already have your favorite.  So I am going to bring you something a little different.

I don’t know about you guys but at our Thanksgiving table we always have some ham too.  It is actually one of my favorite parts.  However, it can be a pain trying to find room/time for another thing to go into the oven.  That is where the beauty of this recipe comes in, it uses your slow cooker!

That’s right just pop your ham in your slow cooker, and forget about it till dinner time.  You will have a perfectly heated through glazed ham that is moist and perfect for your Thanksgiving table!

Pineapple Cranberry Ham

Now please do not stress and send me a thousand comments about the quantities in the recipe.  It is very versatile and can be adjusted to your taste.

Basically your start with your fully cooked spiral sliced ham, this can be boneless or bone in.   I used a 3 pound boneless ham.  Then you get dijon mustard and squirt it over the top of the ham as little or as much as you like, you can even use plain old yellow mustard if you prefer.

Now you take a small can of crushed pineapple and just dump that in on top of the ham.  Then take about half a can, more or less depending on your taste and size of ham, of cranberry sauce, jellied or whole berry.  Just stir it up a bit so its not chunky and dump that over the ham.  Then set the crock pot to low and in 4 hours or so (depending on size) you will have the perfect ham.  Once my ham is warmed through I just turn the crock pot to warm and let it set till dinner.

    Thanks for the recipe. It’s perfect way to prepare ham when you have a buffet with multiple hot items and oven space is lacking.

    I have not heard of ham in the crock pot but this sounds great. Love it when you can put things in a slow cooker. I am thinking about doing this for our Christmas party. It would make things easier.
    Thanks for the recipe,

    I’m thinking great alternative for Thanksgiving turkey! Sounds delicious and couldn’t be easier to put together. Love the idea of putting it in the crockpot and letting it do its thing, while I enjoy the day! Featured this week on Busy Monday! Thanks for sharing.

    This sounds like it would be delicous..how much dijon mustard do you “Guess” you use. I don’t normally use or have dijon mustard in my refrigerator or pantry. When you say small can of crushed pineapple, I’m assuming you mean the 8 oz?

      I would guess about 2-3 Tablespoons of mustard, if you prefer yellow mustard just go ahead and use what you have on hand, this is a very forgiving recipe and can be altered to your taste. I am awful with can sizes lol, but I believe you are correct it was an 8 oz can :)

    Im allergic to cranberries. Id like to try this with cherries. But im nit sure what type to buy. What would you suggest? And you said to let cook on low and then the next step you said to turn it to low. Did you mean high the first time? Lol

      Oh my goodness, yes I meant to turn it to warm after cooking it on low lol! I would suggest using any other kind of fruit jam or jelly, perhaps a cherry preserve or cherry jam would work well for you :) Thanks for stopping by :)

    Do you have to use mustard? I have no problem with it but my husband hates it. Is there an alternative?

    Hi thanks for your recipe. It sounds delicious. Just wondering when you say
    fully cooked sliced ham, do you mean it is already cooked and sliced before you buy it ? Do you need any liquid in the slow pot ? Have just bought pot so I am a bit nervous of it. Is it cooked on slow all the time ? Look forward to your reply.

      Yes, just a fully cooked sliced ham will work. The cranberry and pineapple make enough liquid and it is cooked on slow the whole time since it just needs to warm through. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy it!

        I have only found a brown sugar glazed spiral ham. Do you think that would work or should I search harder for plain?

          It should be fine! It might be just a touch sweeter but you can adjust the recipe to tone down the sweetness some!
