Holiday dinners are always a scramble for me - and always end with me trying to balance dishes needing to head into the oven, trying to find more space on the stove, or wishing I had prepared more before the big dinner.

Hi! My name is Courtney from Sweet C's, and I am so excited to be here on The Slow Roasted Italian! Donna and Chad have built such an awesome community, and I'm thrilled to share some of my favorite recipes and videos here with you a couple times a month. I love sharing easy recipes anyone can make, delicious food finds, and also some of the awesome places I visit all over the world - all on a budget!

I've been trying more and more slow cooker recipes as the holidays approach, to try to reduce the heavy lifting when it comes to Holiday Dinner planning - and this Slow Cooker Orange Glazed Ham is a perfect dish bound to grab the spotlight at any Christmas dinner table!

This ham is simple - add to a slow cooker, make a quick glaze, and let cook - with very little cleanup and without taking up precious room on your stove and in your oven!

HELPFUL TIPS TO MAKE SLOW COOKER ORANGE HONEY HAM:

  • Glaze can be added to the slow cooker in the beginning, but I like to drizzle a little of it over the ham as it cooks - so the ham isn't boiling in the glaze.
  • If you notice your glaze is too thin and watery, pour the liquid into a sauce pot and cook down to reduce in half and then slowly add glaze every 1/2 hour for the final two hours of cooktime.
  • If you need a little more crunch to your ham, you can remove from the slow cooker and add to a cooling rack over a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees to get a bit more - but I'm always surprised with how well I get a baked crunch when making ham in the slow cooker!
  • Don't drown the ham in glaze (and other liquids), or it won't make the crunchy caramelized sugar crust so many people love about a good holiday ham dinner! Let your ham have room to cook and form a crust - drizzling glaze over the ham throughout cooking time will help!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE SLOW COOKER ORANGE HONEY HAM:

  • Slow Cooker - the slow cooker is almost my most used kitchen gadget, especially during fall/winter! It's just so convenient, and lets face it, it makes comfort food taste even better!
  • A sharp knife or Mandoline slicer

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Slow Cooker Orange Honey Ham
SERVES 8-10  |  PREP TIME 10 Min  |  COOK TIME 5 Hours 30 Min

8-10 pound fully cooked spiral cut ham
1/2 cup honey
1/2 large orange, thinly sliced
1 cup orange juice
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground mustard
2 teaspoons whole cloves, divided


Place ham in slow cooker flat/cut side down. Score the end facing up, by using a sharp knife to make criss cross marks about 1/8" deep.


Push about 1 teaspoon of the cloves into top of ham.

In a medium sized saucepan, combine honey, oranges slices, orange juice, sugar, ginger and mustard, and the remaining teaspoon of cloves.

Cook on medium for 5 minutes, until the glaze has reduced in half.

Drizzle half of the glaze mixture over ham, saving 1/2 the glaze to drizzle as it cooks. Cover slow cooker and cook on low 4-5 hours.

Add more glaze every hour of cooking, and in the last hour, add more glaze every 25 minutes.

When ham has developed a crunchy, dark brown glaze, remove from pan and serve immediately.
