  • Large crockpot (at least 6-quarts)
  • Measuring Cups


  • 1 Pre-cooked spiral-cut ham bone-in or boneless
  • 3 1/2 cups Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Raw natural honey
  • 1 20 oz Can pineapple tidbits or chunks (do not drain)


  • Spread 2 cups of brown sugar evenly on the bottom of a large crockpot (at least 6-quarts).
  • Place the ham on top of the brown sugar. Gently open the slices with your hands.
  • Pour the honey evenly over the ham.
  • Add the pineapple chunks (along with the juice) around the sides and some on top of the ham.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar over the top of the ham, making sure it’s evenly covered.
  • Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.


  • Make sure your ham is pre-cooked and spiral-cut for best results. Both bone-in and boneless work fine.
  • The juice from the canned pineapple adds extra flavor and helps keep the ham moist.
  • If your crockpot runs hot, start checking the ham at 3 hours to avoid overcooking. The ham is ready when it’s heated through and the sugar has caramelized.
