Slow Cooker Spiral Sliced Ham

One of best ways to cook a (pre-cooked) ham in a crock pot is to cook it on low, covered with a simple glaze to upgrade it, just until it's heated through.

Here a savory smoked ham roast is generously coated with the perfect autumn inspired glaze. It includes apple juice concentrate, maple syrup, brown sugar and mustard. It lightly sweetens the ham and gives it a welcome extra layer of flavor.

At the end of cooking, you can choose the thickness preferred for the glaze. It will be very runny (more like a broth) so you can choose to thicken those juices from the crockpot with some cornstarch, or just keep it as is and spoon some over the sliced ham for added moisture and seasoning.

This is a recipe that is easy to modify to include other flavors you like or use up ingredients you may have on hand. Here are some ideas:

Possible Substitutes

  • Try it with pineapple juice concentrate in place of apple juice concentrate.
  • Switch out the spice. We went with ginger because I like it with this blend of ingredients but cloves or even cinnamon can be added.
  • You could even use fresh ginger here in place of dried (add a few teaspoons).
  • If you don't have real maple syrup try it with honey.
  • Dijon Mustard will work for spicy brown mustard. Add more mustard if you want more tangy flavor.
