Slow-Cooker Ham


Easy time saver slow-cooker ham

Ham for the Holidays
Slow-Cooker Ham frees your time to make your sides and desserts. Leftover ham opens the door for other meals. Omelets, soup, casseroles and sandwiches. 

1 cup honey
⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp whole-grain mustard
2 Tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 (10-lb) Spiral Sliced Ham

Mix all ingredients, except ham, in a small bowl. Move ⅓ of the glaze to a separate smaller bowl; set aside. Brush the remaining glaze onto the ham and in between the spiral cut slices. Place ham in a large slow cooker flat/face side down. Cover (for a large ham, you might need to fold down the slices so the lid fits) and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours or on low for 4 to 5 hours, or to a recommended internal temperature of 140 F.

Turn on oven to broil. Remove the ham from the slow cooker and place in an oven-safe baking dish. Brush the reserved glaze over the ham. Broil in the oven, several inches from the heat element, for 3 to 4 minutes. (Do not allow the ham to burn.) Remove and serve. Makes 15 servings.
