  • Slow Cooker


  • 1 pre-cooked ham 8-9 pounds, bone-in, and spiral sliced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground clove
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • Place the ham in the slow cooker (with aluminum insert) and drizzle with honey. Cook on low for 3 hours.
  • Just before the ham is finished cooking, Preheat the oven to broil.
  • In a saucepan add the sugar, onion powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, paprika, and 6 tablespoons of liquid from the bottom of the slow cooker. Heat on high heat to a rolling boil, and boil for about 1 minute.
  • Pour half of the topping onto the skin side of the ham.
  • Put the aluminum insert (if you don't have one with an aluminum insert, remove the ham to a cookie sheet and use that) in the oven. With the door open watch for bubbling and when it starts to inflate a little and get bubbly, pull it out of the oven. It should be about 30 seconds.
  • Pour over the remaining glaze and cook for another 30 seconds or so.
  • Slice and serve hot.


  • Be sure to keep a close watch on the ham while it is under the broiler. Don’t leave it. Take it out of the oven once the sugar is bubbly and caramelized.
  • The sugar topping is going to be very hot when it comes out of the oven. Don’t be tempted to touch it or you’ll burn your finger. 
  • You can serve the ham slices hot, room temperature, or cold. I prefer it hot when it's just finished cooking, and later, cold in sandwiches.
