I just love the simplicity of this recipe! Slow Cooker Maple Brown Sugar Ham is great for a large Holiday get-together. Serve with a casserole or two, and a roasted veggie, and you have a superb complete meal for a crowd!
- Place ham in a large slow cooker.
- Thoroughly rub the brown sugar all over the ham, getting all sides.
- Next, whisk pineapple juice, cloves and maple syrup together in medium bowl; pour over the entire ham.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours.
- After 4 hours, flip the ham in the slow cooker and cook one additional hour. Carefully remove ham from slow cooker and rest for 15 minutes before carving. (You may move sliced ham back to the slow cooker. Keep it on warm and serve right form the slow cooker!)
NOTE: Nutrition and serving size based on bone-in-style ham.

What would you recommend using if someone was allergic to pineapple or had to stay away from citrus?
Jennifer since you must stay away from citrus, I would substitute with water. I would suggest a light colored soda but I believe they have some citrus in them as well. Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
I have a huge ham and it will not fit into my largest crock pot. How do I do this in the oven?
You can wrap it in foil and cook it on Low!
Is the ham a pre-cooked or full-cooked ham OR a fresh ham, uncooked?
Hi Eileen, I have always used a pre-cooked ham! 🙂
This is a great idea. How long would you crock a fresh ham?
Robin I would ask the butcher when you purchase a fresh ham, and tell them you want to put it in the slow cooker. Most hams are pre-cooked, or partially cooked, so I would verify with the experts. Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking! Also your slow cooker must be large enough to crock your ham. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
I have a 9 lb. ham do you think I’m going to have to cook it longer than 4-5 hours??
My local store has bone in ham on sale do you use that or boneless? Does it matter? Happy Easter!!
Kristen it does not matter if it is bone in or boneless. Thanks for the question! Happy Crocking!
Are you putting the ham in the crock pot frozen or thawed?
Hi Neen my Ham was thawed… If you put it in frozen it will take a couple more hours to crock through.
Made this yesterday for Easter, The ham turned out GREAT!
We served this for our Christmas dinner. It was absolutely wonderful. I didn’t have pineapple juice so I used a can of crushed pineapple and it worked well. The top of the ham was a little tall for my crock so we just sawed off the bone at the top so it would fit in the crock.
My children prefer a can ham. Can still use this recipe?
Yes Joanne, you can make this recipe your own, and use the ham of your choice! Happy Crocking and Happy Easter!
my ham is not spiral cut,will it absorb the juices?
Yvonne it will! Like all meats that cook in their own juices, it will be delish! Happy Crocking!
Are we talking real maple syrup or pancake syrup, maple flavored? Expensive purchase for half a cup…
It is more about the maple flavoring so you can use the maple syrup that you use for pancakes.
-Do hams cooked with pineapple rings, chunks, juice, etc. taste like pineapple?
-I prefer recipes where nothing has to be done once they are in the crockpot, after all they are made to cook for long periods without attendance. How would you recommend doing this if one won’t be home after 4 hours to flip the ham over? Wanted to make tomorrow, but now don’t know if that will be possible because of the 1 hr. flipping. Thank you!
