Slow Cooker Honey Pineapple Holiday Ham is a must have recipe for holiday parties. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter or any get together is a perfect occasion for Slow Cooker Honey Pineapple Holiday Ham! Occasionally, I even throw this ham in on a Sunday afternoon so to make ham sandwiches for the week’s lunches or a Slow Cooker Ham and Bean Soup.
This recipe is inspired by my grandmother. My grandmother would always make ham with brown sugar, honey or mustard and pineapple slices. She would cook hers in the oven and I prefer the crockpot, especially if you have a turkey and casseroles going in the oven then there just isn’t much room for a ham. The crockpot also lets you cook the ham on a low temperature for a longer time to ensure the juices are soaking in and giving the ham lots of flavor.
Pick a pre cooked ham that is 8-10 pounds and I prefer to buy with bone in so I can make a soup with the leftovers. A ham over 10 pounds may be difficult to squeeze into your crockpot so keep that in mind. Make sure to buy a spiraled pre sliced ham also so the flavors of the honey, pineapple, and brown sugar can really soak in and give you a really tasty ham.

Tips & Tricks
I always recommend buying locally made honey, especially if you suffer from seasonal allergies. Honey is known to help with pollen sensitivities when consumed on a regular basis. I think this is a controversial topic in regards to honey helping fight against seasonal allergies but I believe it and always buy local. Plus, you are helping support a small business in your community which is always a great idea.
