For the last couple of years, I have made the ham for C’s family’s big holiday meals. I usually go with my citrus crock pot ham because it is quick and easy, but I tried something a little different this time and it was so good. As usual here lately, I found this recipe on Pinterest and it was posted from the blog, Beyer Beware. It, too, is a quick and easy recipe and the maple syrup gives it a little extra kick. This is definitely a keeper.
1 spiral sliced ham (Mine was a little too big for my slow cooker so I had to slice it off the bone to fit.)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup real maple syrup
8oz can crushed pineapple
Real maple syrup is usually expensive, but I have a supplier. C’s cousin began making maple syrup last year on his farm here in good ol’ South Central Kentucky and it is so good!! I had just enough left over for this ham.
Since I sliced the ham off the bone, I cooked this in layers. Put half of the ham in the slow cooker then sprinkle with 1/2 of the brown sugar. Pour half of the syrup and pineapple over that and repeat. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until heated through.
