Slow Cooker Honey Baked Ham

Our Grandma’s Slow Cooker Honey Baked Ham is so easy to make and was a huge hit with everyone at Kroger! Below are our special tips on how to make it in the slow cooker.



7-10 lb spiral ham (mine was pre-cooked)

2 Tablespoons brown Dijon mustard (I used spicy)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup honey

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup of water

2 Tablespoons corn starch


Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (if you have a slow cooker liner, I suggest using it- it will make clean-up a breeze!). Place ham in the slow cooker.

Combine sugar, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, and mustard in a sauce pan on medium heat. Let it cook for 2-5 minutes (until ingredients melt and combine) and whisk thoroughly. Remove from heat.

Pour water in the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour honey/brown sugar mixture over the ham. If the lid does not fit over your ham, you can make a tin foil tent (I used an 8 lb ham and it didn’t fit in my 6 quart slow cooker). Cook the ham on low for 6-8 hours. Baste the ham with the juices in the bottom of the slow cooker once every hour.

Once your ham is done, remove it from your slow cooker. Pour the juices in the bottom of your slow cooker into a medium sauce pan. Mix together 2 Tablespoons of corn starch with 1 Tablespoon of water and pour into the sauce pan. Cook on medium heat until it starts to thicken. Use that as a glaze over the ham or as a gravy for potatoes.
