SLOW COOKER ORANGE GLAZED HAM

Slow Cooker Orange Glazed Ham - Butter With A Side of BreadYears ago I experimented with cooking a ham in the crockpot and it worked out so well I’ve cooked them that way since! You can check out one of my favorite Slow Cooker Ham recipes here– but this time I needed something even faster and easier. And you know what- it was incredible! I think this might be my new favorite way to slow cook a ham!

The ham I cooked came from Christiansen’s Family Farm here in Utah. If you’re local, be sure to check them out- they offer humanely treated, pasture raised, all natural meats including, Berkshire pork, Grass Fed Beef, and pastured poultry. It’s farm-to-table ham at its best!

Slow Cooker Orange Glazed Ham

  • 1 5-6 lb bone in ham
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves

Arrange ham in slow cooker broad side down. (See below) Pour orange juice and sprinkle the ground cloves over ham. Spoon on the brown sugar doing your best to press as much onto the outside of the ham.

Put lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or high for 2-3 hours. Note that hams come pre-cooked, so really you’re only heating it up and melding the flavors. There’s no need to cook it all day long and you only run the risk of drying it out!

Once you’re ready to serve your ham, you can ladle and strain out 1 cup of the liquid, then microwave it on high for 1 minute to thicken it up. Slice ham, then drizzle glaze on top.
