Slow Cooker Honey Ham with Pineapple Salsa is the way to a beautiful and stress-free holiday celebration your guests will rave about!
The inspiration behind this recipe:
There’s always so much to do this time of year. There’s spring cleaning to do inside and out, yard work and plants to plant. Not to mention, Easter is coming up very quickly!
In addition to all that, we’re getting ready for the annual visit from my mother-in-law. Most people would dread that but thankfully I have a mother-in-law who is wonderful and very helpful.
To make the most of Easter and her visit, I’m doing this easy Slow Cooker Honey Ham with Pineapple Salsa!
How to make Slow Cooker Honey Ham with Pineapple Salsa:
Because Easter morning is pretty busy, I like to heat ham in a slow cooker so it’s ready when we return from church and I don’t have to take up oven space.
- When you purchase a spiral-sliced ham, typically the glaze surrounds the ham in the package so you’ll want to open it inside the slow cooker.
- Then simply heat on low for 4 to 5 hours.
- If you can, use a turkey baster to baste the ham with the glaze several times while heating.
- Ham garnished with pineapple is the classic way to serve it. However, here’s a fun and updated pineapple salsa to serve with the Slow Cooker Honey Ham. This spicy, tangy pineapple salsa pairs perfectly with the sweet, smoky ham. Use pre-cut pineapple so the salsa can be made quickly.
Have a Happy and Joyous Easter and I hope you enjoy this Slow Cooker Honey Ham with Pineapple Salsa!
