Tuesday Tips

~Crock Pot Ham~

For the past three years, I've prepared my Easter ham in the crock pot. So easy and so delicious! All you do is buy a fully cooked, bone-in, spiral sliced ham. Put a cup of brown sugar in your crock pot. Place the ham in the crock pot,* flat side down, and rub a little more brown sugar on it. That's it! Cook on low for 6 hours. (You don't need to add any liquid, the ham makes it's own as it cooks.)

This is a perfect way to prepare a ham for a noon meal when you are away from home all morning. It's also great for any holiday meal, when you are preparing more than one main dish and need to save room in the oven!

*You do need to have one of the larger, family-size crock pots in order for the ham to fit.

(The first two years of preparing my ham this way, the hams fit just fine. This year the bone was too big and the crock pot wouldn't seal. I just went ahead and took the ham off of the bone and cooked it in slices. We think the ham might have even been better that way!)
