How do you make slow cooker ham? You fill your slow cooker with water, then the ham topped with the glaze. Cook on low for 5 hours and you are done.

Looking for some holiday side dishes to serve alongside this Crock Pot Ham? Consider smothered potatoes, cheesy broccoli rice casserole, or the creamiest slow cooker mac and cheese.

Let’s get into the glaze components and why I think this flavor combo will win everyone in your household over – any time of the year!

Slow Cooker Ham With A Peach Ginger Glaze

There are many different ways you can make a crockpot ham. If peach ginger isn’t a preference for you, feel free to swap out these flavor profiles with whatever you have on hand, but I do hope you give this one a try.

This mix offers up a light and savory bite that truly does work any time of the year. As mentioned, we love to make ham during Christmas, Thanksgiving, or even the Easter seasons. However, we also love to sit down for this meal on any given Sunday!

Tips For Removing The Ham From The Slow Cooker

The hardest part of this recipe is removing the ham from the slow cooker. It’s big, it’s hot and it’s slippery!

Here is a little tip. Try to remove the juice with a turkey baster first. Then put on silicone hot pads and lift the ham out from your slow cooker. It will come out in one piece without a fight.

Tips For Crock Pot Han

  • Make sure that you can fit whatever piece of meat you are bringing into your home. Your crockpot might not be big enough for your cut. The lid might not shut.
  • If this is the case, you could always use tinfoil to cover up your slow cooker in a pinch.
  • You don’t want a boneless ham for this recipe. 
  • Keep your glaze! You will definitely want to use that as an add-on during dinner. You can always simmer it down to thicken it up.
  • If you aren’t a fan of peach or ginger, consider subbing in pineapple.
  • Fresh herbs make all the difference.
  • Most hams come with a glaze packet that you could technically use while slow cooking, but consider the glaze option mentioned above instead. It will offer a richer profile to enjoy!
  • When it comes to ham serving sizes, you will need about 1/2 pound of boneless ham per person or 3/4 pound bone-in ham per person. Keep this in mind.

Reheating Leftovers

It’s really easy to reheat these leftovers. All you have to do is place the pieces you’d like to reheat on a pan, cover it with a bit of foil, and warm up your dish in a 275-degree oven.
