▢8 pounds bone-in spiral-cut cured ham ▢2-2½ cups packed brown sugar divided ▢1 cup pineapple juice ▢¼ cup pure maple syrup (not artificially flavored pancake syrup)


Step - 1

Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray before using. While cut side down, place the ham in a greased slow cooker.  

After distributing 1 cup of brown sugar evenly over the ham, drizzle it with pineapple juice and syrup.  

Step - 2

Cook for 3–4 hours on low heat. Transfer any surplus liquid from the slow cooker to a vessel. If desired, adjust the amount of brown sugar to a higher degree (1–1½ cups) if the ham should be sweeter. 

Step - 3

When the liquid reaches a rolling boil, remove it from the fire and pour it over the ham. Cook for an additional 30–60 minutes over moderate heat. 

Step - 4

Remove the liquid from the heat once it has reached a rolling boil, then distribute it over the ham. 30–60 minutes should be added while cooking over moderate heat.
