Great start for a great ham. I did make several changes but this is the recipe that got me started. I stuck it with many cloves which added nice flavour and aroma. I mixed dry mustard in with the brown sugar(less than a cup for my 10 pound ham) and sprinkled some in the bottom of the slow cooker but used most of it to rub into the top and sides of the ham. I got a late start so I started it on high for 2 hours and then turned it to low for 3 hours. It came out well done but the most moist ham ever. So, so good. Thanks for sharing your recipe to get me started on making our ham just the way we like it.


  1. Trim thick skin (rind), and fat off ham.
  2. Spread about 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar on the bottom off the slow cooker crock.
  3. Place the ham flat side down into slow cooker. Rub remaining brown sugar onto top of ham.
  4. Cover, and cook on Low for 6-8 hours.
