How to make slow cooker brown sugar and pineapple glazed ham

Print this recipe
Pineapple and ham. It's a match made in culinary heaven, isn't it? Add a little bit of brown sugar to that and wow, you have just entered divine. And that's what the recipe below features. The brown sugar surrounds it all, from top to bottom, and the pineapple juices work with it to create a syrup that is everything you want pineapple and ham to be. Of course, you also get those sweet pineapple pieces, warmed from the slow cooker.
But the best thing about this recipe might not even be the taste. It's that this is a recipe you don't have to fuss over. Slow cooker recipes always tend to mean no fuss, but with some things, especially things like ham that need a glaze, you have to watch it. You have to baste it. In other words, yYu have to fuss. Not with this one, though. Just get it going in the cooker, and come back in about four hours or so.

4 hours
4 hours, 5 minutes
1 fully cooked boneless ham, about 6 pounds
3-1/2 cups brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup honey
1 20-ounce can pineapple pieces, with juices
If the ham isn't already sliced (such as in a spiral ham), slice the ham widthwise, without slicing right all the way through.
Place 2 cups of the brown sugar in the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker.
Place the ham on top and open the slices slightly with your fingertips. Pour the honey evenly over the ham.
Add the can of pineapple pieces and juice directly on top of the ham.
Cover the ham with the remaining 1-1/2 cups brown sugar evenly.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 3-1/2 to 4 hours.
