  • Spray a slow cooker with cooking spray. Sprinkle about 1 cup (maybe a little more) of brown sugar over the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Place a bone-in, spiral-sliced ham in a slow cooker that has been sprayed with cooking spray. IMPORTANT: Be sure the lid to the slow cooker still fits on the slow cooker. It is important that the ham you buy fits into your slow cooker.
  • Cover the ham with brown sugar. Separate the slices slightly as well.
  • Cover the ham and brown sugar with with crushed pineapple, allow some of the juices to run down in between the slices of ham.
  • Pour the maple syrup (or honey) over the pineapple and ensure that the ham is completely covered.
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook per the instructions below.
  • Cook the ham on low for 3-1/2 to 4 hours on high or for 7 - 8 hours on low.


  • According to the USDA, precooked, spiral-sliced hams are safe to eat cold. However, since we are reheating this pre-cooked ham, use a food thermometer and heat until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 140 °F. 
  • Be sure to use a large slow cooker or crock pot so the ham will fit in the crock pot. I recommend using one at least a 6-quart crock pot or larger.
  • Make sure the size of ham you purchase will fit in the crock pot that you have.
  • Once you place the ham in the crock pot, but before you start adding the toppings, separate the slices slightly, so the juices will run down inside the ham.
