Slow Cooker Ham

Cooking Ham in a Crock Pot

I found this recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s new Hometown Christmas. This recipe is by far the easiest most flavorful ham I have ever personally made. It was incredibly tender and juicy and it literally took 5 minutes to throw in the crock pot!

Now I prefer a basic bone-in ham versus a spiral cut ham. I think it is nostalgia more than anything ;) But regardless of what type of ham you choose, there isn’t an easier way out there to cook it than in your slow cooker!

    that’s how I cooked my ham this year. It was super easy and tasted wonderful. It fell apart and was so tender. In fact, I think I’ll go get some leftovers right now :)
