Crock Pot Ham Recipe

Confession time. I had to dust off the Crock Pot before I could make this Crock Pot Ham Recipe. I have a crock pot problem! I love them! I have (too) many of them! I forget to use them! Seriously, there are at least six different crock pots in this house and there is usually only two of us eating a meal. What emptynest couple needs six crock pots? Apparently, I don’t since I forget to use them.

Last week, I actually remembered to pull it out and try a Crock Pot Ham Recipe. I kept seeing these recipes all over my Pinterest feed, but was skeptical of putting a whole ham in the crock pot to cook. I am happy to admit that my skepticism was way off. This Crock Pot Ham Recipe is DELICIOUS!! Juicy, tender and all kinds of yum!

I opted to use a boneless fully cooked ham in my Crock Pot Ham Recipe. This recipe is based on a Pinterest Remake of the recipe posted by TheFrugalGirls.Com. This recipe was modified to fit our families preferences and I had to make a few ingredient subsitutions due to lack of ingredients.

For some reason I have a bad habit of going to the grocery store and not coming home with the items on my shopping list. The list is usually at home on the counter after I get to the store. (FAIL) Thanks to another botched grocery shopping trip, cherry juice was a substitue for the normal pineapple juice.

Coat the ham with juice/mustard mixture.

You can add cherries or pineapples to top of ham, if you wish.

As soon as the food thermometer reads 165 degrees your ham is fully reheated/cooked.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! You would think putting a fully cooked ham in the crock pot, might dry it out. No sir! The crock pot holds the moisture in doing its job perfectly.

I need to get better at this whole Crock Pot thing. When the kids were at home I used my Crock Pots all of the time. Now they just collect dust. This ham was so easy to make. It was juicy and had a lot of flavor. We cooked the whole ham, ate one meal and froze all of the leftovers for future meals. I like having the ready to serve foods in the freezer for easy meals. I am going to add “Get better at using the Crock Pot” to my to do list!

Do you use a Crock Pot?
