Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Picnic Ham

I have never made  Picnic Ham, it was actually quite by accident, I was planning on a completely different cut of ham but accidentally purchased this cut instead, but quite happy I got this one as it was one of the most moist tender cuts of ham I’ve ever purchased!

Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Picnic Ham

3/4 Cup Pineapple Juice
2 Tablespoons Pineapple Juice
1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Dozen Cloves


  1. Before starting this recipe make sure your bone in ham will fit your crock-pot!
  2. Spray Crock-Pot with Pam or similar.
  3. Pour the ¾ths cup of pineapple juice into bottom of crock-pot.
  4. Add the 1½ cup of Brown Sugar to the pineapple juice and mix carefully.
  5. With the fat side down place in your crock-pot.
  6. Score the ham slightly.
  7. Pour 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice carefully over the ham, just to moisten.
  8. Rub ½ cup brown sugar slowly into ham.
  9. Add a dozen cloves into ham.
  10. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  11. You may carefully baste one time in the middle of cooking time quickly.
  12. Remove cloves before eating.


Be sure to check the temperature before eating and if you pick a larger ham you may need to cook a bit longer. I used a 7 quart crock-pot for my picnic ham and it “barely” was tall enough. With it being a bone in, you don’t have much wiggle room!
