The Mama's Ginger Ale Holiday Ham (Crock Pot)

"This is another one of the Mama's famous recipes that she has made for as long as I can remember. It's simple, it's quick and it frees up your oven to make other dishes, as well as saves you the stress of checking the ham to make sure it isn't cooking too quickly. This has always produced a sweet and salty Easter or Christmas ham that everyone in our family enjoyed. I hope you like it, too! (I also found that spiral sliced is the best choice because it allows the ingredients to soak in better)"

  • Add ham to crock pot.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar over ham.
  • Pour ginger ale over brown sugar.
  • Cover and cook on Low for 5-7 hours or until heated through. (It will hold in the crock pot for longer without drying out because it cooks in it's own juices so take your time and don't worry about it.).

The most defining trait in my life is that I am a mother to two wonderful boys (Tyler, 20 and Zayden, 9). I live in the little college town of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. It is the most wonderful place to live as it's nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and along the beautiful Susquehanna River. Seeing that we live in Central Pennsylvania, our family is also a bunch of HARDCORE Penn State Nittany Lion fans! We are...PENN STATE! I was lucky enough to be given tickets to see Joe Paterno win his 400th game as the head coach of the football team. I cried like I did when my children were born. The other love of my life is cooking. I didn't really start trying to cook until I was 20, but believe me I have made up for lost time! I absolutely adore baking and I do it whenever I can. I love making Christmas cookies and I have begun hosting our extended families at our home for Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. So far so good. I love because it allows me to expand my culinary skills and my recipe box with ideas from other people like me. There is something for everyone and I have been a loyal member since 2005. I hope you enjoy my recipes and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
