Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Ham

"I had a Farmland ham that was already cubed so I thew a little of this and a little of that together. It was good, but I think I'd like to try it again with shrimp!"

Ready In:
5hrs 20mins
1 cup per person (approx)




  • I used a 7 qt crock pot and fed 9 people with about 4 cups leftover.
  • You might want to half the recipe.
  • Combine all ingredients including pineapple juice, but NOT the pineapple or cornstarch yet.
  • Cook on low 5 hours.
  • Add cornstarch - ( all if very liquid ) and the pineapple.
  • Cook for an additional 1 or 2 hours. I “cooked” for 6 hour total, but after all cooking was done I had it on warm for another 2 hours. I started way too early and misjudged how long it would take to cook.
  • The ham made a kind of smoky tasting sweet and sour sauce, but it was good. I served it with rice on a busy school night and except for one teenage dweeb who eats nothing but hamburgers, they all liked it.

  1. The baby ate it, but she'll eat anything. No one else touched it. I debated for a while if I should even keep the leftovers...


Homeschooling mother of 7. Married 24 years this September. Our oldest boy was sous chef at a local restaurant, hence the name I picked for myself. He graduated from Culinary college last Spring and now he works as Sushi chef at the hottest sushi joint in town. It's not as challenging culinary-wise and he misses that, but sushi eaters are BIG tippers and he is saving up to go overseas for mission work. Two years ago I decided to take control of my health and life. And that included quitting a 30 year smoking habit on Feb. 12, 2006 and losing 30 lbs. I have succeeded in doing both! I feel great and I am getting very adventuresome in my life. I now walk all over town, ride my bike, have been known to skateboard :-) and on my 45th birthday I went and jumped off a BIG rope swing into a (COLD!) lake. YIKES! I have also been getting adventuresome in my cooking and eating. I love eating more than I love cooking, but mostly because 90% of the kids AND my husband likes junk food and I don't! I joined zaar's to start making yummy healthy foods for myself, and hopefully in the process, convince the rest of the family that good food is Good Food! My whole lifestyle and way of eating/cooking has so totally changed that I really need help figuring out how to cook so my family is satisfied, and yet healthy. <img src="">
