There are quite a few different versions of this crock pot brown sugar pineapple ham circulating on Pinterest, but this crock pot recipe has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I love the sweet flavor that the brown sugar, pineapple and maple syrup gives the spiral cut ham.
If you don’t have any maple syrup on hand you can certainly leave that out.
The inclusion of the pineapple tidbits in this yummy family recipe is really important, though. I love the flavor that it adds to the ham and everyone loves having a few of those remnant pineapple chunks on their plate to enjoy along with each bite of ham.
I used a 6lb. bone-in spiral sliced ham for this crock pot brown sugar pineapple hame recipe, but you can certainly use any ham that you prefer. Whether it’s spiral sliced or not, bone-in or bone-out—it’s up to you! The important part is that yummy sauce created from the pineapple, brown sugar and maple syrup. It’s just SO yummy.
This sweet, juicy and delicious slow cooker ham recipe is easy to make but will WOW your guests!
