Pineapple Brown Sugar Ham

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare a spiral ham. It is SO delicious!

  • 1 pre-cooked spiral ham, bone-in or boneless, either will work
  • 3 1/2 cups brown sugar, divided use
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, undrained*

* I chop these up a little more if they are large.


  1. Cover the bottom of a large slow cooker with 2 cups brown sugar.
  2. Place ham on top of the brown sugar, opening the slices slightly with your fingers.
  3. Evenly pour the honey over the ham.
  4. Add the pineapple around the sides (with the juice) and some on top.
  5. Top with the remaining 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, making sure it is evenly distributed over the entire top of the ham.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
