It really does not get easier than this around the holidays! But what I love about this ham is that it’s not so fancy or so difficult that it can’t be just an easy weeknight dinner or Sunday supper — you can dress it up or dress it down. Serve it with some Skillet Scalloped Potatoes and Slow Cooker Honey Orange Glazed Carrots for the perfect Easter meal — but don’t forget these Lemon Berry Cheesecake Trifles for dessert!

Since our parents are both close, I don’t usually end up with the task of hosting holiday dinners. But I can spot the mounds of dirty pots and pans from a mile away — and though I’d like to stay a mile away, I do usually try to get in and help! I love using the Slow Cooker Liners from Reynolds so there’s no scrubbing the slow cooker after dinner.

I am not usually a big fan of mustard or ground cloves, but they pair so well with ham, and I added just enough to give it that extra layer of flavor without overpowering the ham! Feel free to adjust the seasonings to your tastes.

Ingredients

  • 1.7 kg fully cooked ham* about 3.75 pounds
  • 355 ml can Ginger Ale soda about 1.5 cups
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Place ham in 4-6 quart slow cooker (I recommend lining with a slow cooker liner from Reynolds first!).
  • In a medium bowl, combine soda, honey, garlic, vinegar, mustard and cloves and whisk until smooth. Pour over the ham in the slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8 hours (or until heated through).
  • minutes before serving, turn slow cooker to high if not already on high. Combine corn starch and water and slowly stir into the sauce, adding only as much as necessary to reach desired thickness. Salt sauce if desired, to taste.
  • Slice and serve with extra glaze from the slow cooker.

Notes

* This glaze would be awesome with an unbaked ham as well -- you will just need to adjust your cooking time and test the ham's temperature to ensure it is completely done!
** Optional: You can slice the ham before adding to the slow cooker so that it's all ready for guests to dig in!

    I have a new 6 quart crockpot. I am having guests for dinner and will be cooking the precooked ham in the pot. First time ever. (I am 84). I am using a liner. The ham weighs 7#. Do I cook it on low for 6 to 8 hours? The pot is programmable. To what temperature should I cook it? 165? Since my husband died a little over a year ago, this is the first big meal I have prepared for people. I don’t want to mess it up by ruining the ham. HELP!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Beatrice! I think since the ham is fully cooked that it is a little more flexible with the timing, since you know it won’t be undercooked you just want it hot and moist 🙂 I would still cook it on low for 6 to 8 hours, and you may want to baste it occasionally or flip it to keep the top moist too. I hope that helps!

    Hi Ashley! I love ham but my husband doesn’t. I usually buy a ham steak and cook it with a brown sugar and butter glaze when he is out of town on business…along with baked sweet potatoes which he isn’t really a fan of either..works for me! I absolutely love my new crock pot and if hosting a holiday dinner would absolutely use your recipe!

  3. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says

    Okay, so I have to admit I hate ham. Like, I throw a hissy fit whenever my mom wants to serve one at Easter. But this ham actually looks delicious, Ashley! Love that you used the trusty slow cooker! And ginger ale?! Whaaaaa? That sounds awesome! Now this is a ham I can support being served on Easter. Trust me when I say that is saying A LOT! 😉 Cheers, girlfriend!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Haha! We all have our own tastes! I am actually obsessed with ham — I have started buying an extra one around the holidays when they’re on sale just so I can cook it and freeze it for later! Lol. Thanks Chey!

  4. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    I’ve never made a ham before, but if I did, it would definitely be in the slow cooker! Sounds delicious, Ashley! I love that you used ginger ale in here…definitely a secret ingredient that I wouldn’t have expected!
