My husband and I love to open our home during the holidays to folks that don't have family in the area. I only have a single oven so I decided to try to our Easter ham in the crockpot. It was a gigantic hit even with those that 'hate' ham!

How to Make Ham with Honey-Chipotle Sauce in a Crockpot

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare ham by scoring the surface with 1/2 inch deep diamond pattern.

    Spray a 4 1/2 - 5 quart crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2Mix reserved pineapple juice with 1 cup of brown sugar. Pour in the bottom of the crockpot.

    Place scored ham on top of brown sugar/pineapple mixture.
  • 3In a medium saucepan mix remaining 1 cup brown sugar, ginger ale, honey and vinegar. Cook to a boil; reduce to half (about 15 minutes or so). Add remaining ingredients and cook for about another 5 minutes.

    Note: I only use 1/2 of the crushed pineapple.
  • 4Reserve 1 cup of sauce and set aside. Pour remaining sauce over the ham. Cook on low for about 7 hours on low.
  • 5After 7 hours pour reserved cup of sauce over the ham and continue to cook for 1 more hour.

    Ham will be fork tender.
