Hamming it Up with Super B – Slow Cooker Ham

Posted by  Shannon   in  ,      1 year ago     748 Views     Leave your thoughts  

There are very few memories that I have that don’t involve the kitchen.  It seems like everything with my family always involved food in one way shape or form, so it was only natural that the kitchen was the place to be.  So, now that I have a family of my own I am always so excited to be able to share “cooking” time with my son, hence the title of this post.  The first time we made this it was great fun; Super B, my son, very much enjoy measuring out the sugar, which just happens to be his favorite ingredient.  The best part was making the glaze, which Super B loved the most, as he kept saying we were “stirring up the witches’ brew” – it completely cracked me up.

Ingredients
  • 1 ea Ham Bone-in, spiral cut (I usually use a pretty large ham) pick the appropriate poundage, just make sure it fits in your slow cooker)
  • 1 can Pineapple Crushed in its own juice
  • 1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar Give or take, you will want to make sure you have a little more in case you want to addsome
  • 3 tbsp Mustard I enjoy a spicy mustard, so either Golden's, a Stone ground mustard or something similar. I don't think a plain yellow mustard would yield the same flavor results
  • 1/4 cup Bourbon
  • 1/2 tbsp Honey I like to use organic wild flower honey, but really any honey should do the trick

Instructions
Part 1 - Making the Glaze
  1. In a small bowl, add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons mustard, and the 1/4 cup of bourbon. Stir until well mixed, then add the honey and stir again. I like to make sure the sugar is mixed well before adding the honey. If you taste it and find it needs more sweet, add some additional brown sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Once completely mixed, set aside for later.
Part 2 - The Ham
  1. In the bottom of your slow cooker, use 1 cup of brown sugar to coat the bottom evenly. Place the ham directly on top of the brown sugar. I have done this with the ham on the side or with the ham upright, it doesn't really make a difference. Cover the ham with about 1/2 of the glaze (if your ham is small you may use less glaze, depending on your tastes).
  2. Next use the contents of the can of pineapple a spread out on top of the ham; make sure you include the pineapple juice. Pout the remainder of the glaze on the ham and cover.
  3. Turn your slow cooker on low and let cook for 8 hours. The ham will end up with a lot of liquid but, it makes an incredibly flavorful, fall off the bone ham. Enjoy.
