Maple Brown Sugar Ham

First I want to apologize for my lack of posting on Thursday and Friday, I had gone out of town to my Sister's house and I didn't have time to post Wednesday night or Thursday because I was packing and getting ready to be gone all weekend and then when I tried to post at my Sister's house on Friday my internet connection went crazy...I don't know what was wrong it would allow me on Facebook but not on here.  Anyways I'm back and I already have all my posts ready for the week.  :) 

I've been trying to come up with and post holiday recipes and I'm not about to cook a big Turkey before hand so I figured I'd do a Ham.  I really liked the flavor of this Ham I just made a mistake and bought the wrong cut of Ham so it had entirely too much fat for me.  I couldn't even tell you what kind I bought I just know it had a bone and next time I will buy one without a bone.  And next time I will be asking either my Dad, Mom, or Grandparents which cut they buy because I want one like I've had at their houses not like this one.  But regardless of the cut of Ham this recipe is wonderful and the flavor was really good!  Enough babbling here's the recipe...

Crock Pot-Maple Brown Sugar Ham
7-8lb. ham
2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup REAL maple syrup

Place your ham flat side down in the crock pot.  Rub the brown sugar on all sides of the ham.  Whisk together the maple syrup and the pineapple juice in a bowl and then pour over the ham.  Cook on low for 4-5 hours.  An hour before serving, baste ham with the collected juices from the bottom of the slow cooker. 

Let your ham rest 10 minutes on the carving board before you cut into it.

  1. I think the ham looks wonderful. The bone probably gave it an incredible amount of flavor too. If that was a mistake, it was a great one.
