How to Cook a Precooked Ham with Clove and Pineapple in Slow Cooker
Never have dry ham again! Cooking this ham with cloves and pineapple make it delicious. Cooking it in the slow cooker, keep it moist. You just need to make sure the ham will fit in the slow cooker, with the lid on before you start this recipe.
Can You Cook a Ham in a Slow Cooker?
Definitely! We use a precooked ham. It would take a lot longer if the ham was not precooked. You will need to check to make sure the ham will fit in your slow cooker BEFORE you start. If it doesn’t, you will want to trim it so that it fits.
Why Do you Score the Ham?
The ham is scored so that the flavors from the pineapple and cloves will infuse into the ham. Add as much pineapple and clove that you like.
Can You Make Other Types of Ham in the Slow Cooker?
Definitely! You can make a ham honey glazed, orange rum glazed, cherry glazed. But most importantly, don’t forget to make gravy when you make your ham!
Why Do you Add Brown Sugar to Ham?
It gives a sweetness. If you don’t like sweet, remove this from your recipe and enjoy.

I recently made a ham in the slow cooker it was a little dry. wrapping it with pineapple might be the key.
thanks for linking this up to Friday Frenzy. Hope to see you next week.
When you wrap it in pineapple, also use the juice in the can at the bottom and pouring on the brown sugar (if you like).
