Ham in the Crockpot

This recipe is the best ham you could ever have, considering it’s out of a crockpot and sooo easy! And that says a lot because I don’t usually like ham and I REALLY don’t like cherries, but I love this! It’s compliments of Bettee Markins (sorry I don’t know your married last name!). Make sure your ham says READY TO COOK and not FULLY COOKED and make sure you buy one that will fit into your crockpot!

Ham in the Crockpot


1 butt portion ham, ready to cook, 7-8 lbs.
1 small can pineapple slices, drained
1 small jar maraschino cherries, drained
1 small bottle of honey


Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Place ham, pointy side down into the crockpot. Dump cherries, pineapple and honey on top. Cover and cook on low for 6.5 hours. Check for doneness. Ham shouldn’t need to cook more than 8 hours because it’ll dry out.

The ingredients

Ham Cooked in the Crockpot

Verdict: This ham is fabulous! When I took it out of the crockpot, I kept the juices in a separate bowl that people could spoon over their own meat. It was incredibly tender and I was told it was the best ham ever! It’s so easy you’d be crazy not to try it!
