    1. Spread about 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar on the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the ham flat side down into the slow cooker - you might have to trim it a little to make it fit. Use your hands to rub the remaining brown sugar onto the ham. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 hours.

    I used a 9-lb spiral cut honey cured ham with the stated brown sugar amounts and cooked on low for 4 hours. I sealed over the ham with foil and then put on the lid. The ham was delicious and very moist. This is a great option for large family gatherings when your oven is being used for other dishes. I'll definitely use this one again.  -  09 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am sure this is a great recipe from all the reviews. The problem I had was I have a small crock pot, so I purchased a 3 lb picnic ham which to my delight fit perfectly in my crock pot. I had no idea how to adjust the time difference so I figured 3-4 hours on low. Apparently it was done in about an hour or two. At 3 1/2 hrs it was brown and tough and in the garbage. So I just wanted to write this to help someone in the same predictament.  -  18 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Just be sure to buy a picnic ham (picnic shoulder or pork shoulder?)and not a smoked ham like I did! By mistake I used a bone-in smoked ham & this was weird. It turned dark brown and fell apart. Otherwise, am sure it's a good recipe like the others say. Wish recipe had stated to NOT use a traditional smoked ham for us who don't normally buy non-traditional pork cuts.  -  22 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
