This could not get any easier I promise. This is perfect for Thanksgiving Christmas or even Easter! I just happened to find a great deal on a ham at my local grocery store and my crew loves ham for dinner, plus the leftovers can be made into so many tasty dishes too!

Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Ham

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 6-8

Serving size: 



The key to this recipe is to let the ham sit after cooking to let it reabsorb some of the juices.

  • 1 (4-5) Pound Ham (I prefer a spiral sliced ham for easy serving)
  • 1 Cup Light Or Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves

  1. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and ground cloves and stir to mix.
  2. Spread ½ of the brown sugar mixture on the bottom of a 6-7 quart oval crock-pot.
  3. Place ham, cut side down, into crock-pot on top of the brown sugar.
  4. Rub the remaining brown sugar mixture all over the rest of the ham.
  5. Cover and cook on low 4 hours.
  6. Turn crock-pot off and let sit for 30 minutes so that the ham can reabsorb some of the juices that will come out when cooked for a moister meat.

Spoon the remaining crock-pot ham juices over the ham when serving. Delish!
