This Slow Cooker Ham With Honey And Bourbon is the perfect way to twist the flavor of a Slow Cooker Ham. I love to use my slow cooker during the holidays; it’s a great way to keep the oven open for other sides and dishes. Even at Thanksgiving, we serve ham and turkey every year, so it works out perfectly since the turkey is in the oven.

I love to cook ham and when ham goes on sale for the holidays I always buy a couple of extras and freeze them for big dinners later in the year! You can’t beat the price per pound around the holidays. The leftovers also make amazing soups as well!
Slow Cooker Honey And Bourbon Ham Ingredients:
- Bone-In Cooked Ham– I use a bone in ham when I make this. My mom has done a spiral ham, but it tends to be harder to remove from the crockpot.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Brown Sugar
- Kentucky Bourbon- I personally used Jim Bean but you can use any Bourbon.
- Dijon-style Mustard
How To Make Slow Cooker Honey And Bourbon Ham:
Now I got lucky to find a 10 Quart Slow Cooker on clearance at Walmart, but Amazon has them too. I have to say I love that I can make big meals like this Slow Cooker Ham or a huge batch of soup to share with others or freeze up the leftovers.
Spray the inside of your crockpot with a nonstick spray.
In a bowl mix together everything but the ham together to create the glaze for the ham.
Place your ham in the crockpot and turn the crockpot to low.
Slowly pour your glaze over the ham in the crockpot.
Cover the ham and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours! I set a timer for every hour to use a turkey baster to cover ham with the glaze as it is cooking in the crockpot.
Now I have yet to find a crockpot that can fully fit a ham. I always put the lid on and then wrap it in tin foil to make a seal to cook with.
Serve and enjoy!!! How do you cook your ham for the holidays?
How To Store Leftover Ham
Remove your ham from the bone and trim any excess fat. Cut the leftover ham pieces and store them in an air-tight container. This can be in an airtight container or a zip-lock bag. You can keep the bone in leftover ham recipes or toss the bone. A ham bone can not be given to dogs; it is unsafe for dogs to chew on it as it will break and harm their digestive system.
Ham can be stored in the fridge for up to five days or frozen for up to 3 months.
