Spiral Cut Slow Cooker Ham is one of the easiest ways to make a juicy ham.
If you need to cook your ham while you are away from your house, a slow cooker is a terrific option. I would aim for cooking it about 6 hours, but I have tried it and it’s still moist and delicious after 8 hours. If you will be away for longer than 8 hours, I suggest you use a programmable slow cooker.
Do You Celebrate Easter?
Although I became a Quaker (member of the Religious Society of Friends) many years ago, I grew up in the United Methodist Church, where Easter is a big deal. Not so much for Quakers. Many Quakers do believe in Jesus, revere him as a prophet, and generally follow his teachings. Quakers do not have a specific creed. We do believe:
- “There is that of God in everyone.”
- We must “listen to the Spirit.”
- We strive to “live a Spirit-filled life.”
- We “hold people in the Light” as a method of prayer.
There is generally no special Easter service at the Quaker Meetinghouse, however. And, of course, this year the pandemic has us “worshipping in place” (in our own homes).
Don and I continue to celebrate Easter in a low-key kind of way by having a more elegant meal, such as Spiral Cut Slow Cooker Ham, for the holiday’s supper. It is moist, tender, salty and sweet. I think it’s my favorite way to make ham. Easy. Tasty. Bam!
What You Need
You will need measuring cups and spoons and a slow cooker. If your slow cooker isn’t programmable, you can use a light timer to make it come on when you want it to do so. But what you really want is some lovely stemware, am I right?
