A while ago someone asked for a recipe for crock pot ham, Diana Neal suggested doing it with pineapple and brown sugar so last night I experimented and this recipe is the result. Mitchell hams are a small solid ham but you can adjust this recipe to accommodate any size or type of ham Do not over cook it. The raisin sauce is so easy and tastes great. Since this is a first try recipe I would ask anyone that tries this recipe to please send in comments and any adjustments that you make I feel it has a way to go before it is just right.
- 1 (1 kg) Mitchell black forest ham
- 1 (14 ounce) can crushed pineapple
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
- 16 whole cloves
- 3 shallots, chopped
- 3⁄4 cup dark raisin
- Mix all the ingredients except raisins and ham in your crock pot.
- Place ham in crock pot, spoon some of the mixture over the ham, turn to low.
- Cook for 4 hours, after 3 hours add the raisins to the pot.
- Carve and serve.
- Put sauce in a serving bowl and it's done.
This was EXCELLENT! Bought myself a Crockpot Sunday and made this yesterday (monday). It tasted a bit like the spiral ham that I usually make...but this was much much cheaper. The only thing I did differently was that I added an enevelope of brown gravey mix into the ingrediants. The taste on mashed patatoes was excellent! Since it was about 90 degrees here yesterday...it was great to have a good dinner without having to turn on the oven!! Definetly a keeper!!!!!!
I think this recipe is already just right. I tried this last night using a frozen 3 lb. ham. My crockpot only cooks on high, so I use frozen meat so it won't be overdone. I used 15.5 oz. of crushed pineapple, and I added two small (single-serving) cans of pineapple juice. I used ground cloves, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. I used Louisiana cane sugar, and I added a couple of extra spoonfuls b/c of the added juice. After the ham had cooked 5 hours, I added a cup of raisins. At that time, I sliced the ham and put it back in the pot for an hour before serving it with Baked Beans by Richard and instant loaded mashed potatoes (by Idahoan). Dinner was excellent, and the leftovers I had today were even better. I plan to serve this at my holiday get-together. It's a great, simple recipe!
I used a cheap 5 lb boneless ham and cut it in half lengthwise. I doubled the recipe. The flavor of the cloves blended perfectly with the sweetness of the pinapple making a cheap ham taste great. I cooked it in the crockpot for about 5 hours at a combination of low and high.
