I bought a small 1.5 lb ham for Easter and I don’t know if I should cook it in the crockpot or cut it up and cook it in the Scalloped Potatoes with Leeks and Thyme, that I’m planning on cooking anyway. Either way it should be good. Since I already made my post about the scalloped potatoes, this post will be a crockpot recipe for a ham that’s 2 lbs or less that I’ll add a honey glaze and brown sugar. Sounds good, right? My 1.5 lb ham will serve 3 people. A good rule of thumb is 1/2 lb per person. Time to prepare and cook is a little over 3 hours.
Nonstick cooking spray
1 8 oz can of crushed pineapple
1.5-2 lb boneless ham
1-2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
My smallest slow cooker is my 3 quart mini Instant Pot, otherwise I have a 6 quart crockpot. Which ever I choose I need to spray a good coat of a nonstick cooking spray before I pour in the can of crushed pineapples.
Prepare the ham by brushing on the honey. In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients then pack it on the ham. Place the ham cut side down on top of the pineapple. Any remaining brown sugar pile on top of the ham.
Cook on low for 3 hours. After 2 hours spoon some of the pineapple on top of the ham. After 3 hours check to see if the internal temperature has reached 140. Times may vary due to different crockpot/slow cookers and the size of the ham. Remove the ham from the crockpot and allow it to set for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve sliced on a platter garnished with some of the pineapple. Yum Yum!
