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!
Before starting this recipe make sure your bone in ham will fit your crock-pot!
Spray Crock-Pot with Pam or similar.
Pour the ¾ths cup of pineapple juice into bottom of crock-pot.
Add the 1½ cup of Brown Sugar to the pineapple juice and mix carefully.
With the fat side down place in your crock-pot.
Score the ham slightly.
Pour 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice carefully over the ham, just to moisten.
Rub ½ cup brown sugar slowly into ham.
Add a dozen cloves into ham.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
You may carefully baste one time in the middle of cooking time quickly.
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!
Hi I'm Sarah, I live in very rural Kansas with my 3 children. We also have 3 hens, Betty Lou, Dinozzo, Jenny Jewel. Our fun involves gardening, living in an iconic area of the country where corn fields,small towns, tractors, farmers and hard work are still very important and occasionally when we need some adventure we drive on over the border to Missouri where the real shopping stores are...aka Target. I grew up in Utah so I enjoy commemorating with Heidi over everything Rocky Mountains.
