Slow Cooker Orange Honey Ham

SERVES 8-10  |  PREP TIME 10 Min  |  COOK TIME 5 Hours 30 Min

8-10 pound fully cooked spiral cut ham
1/2 cup honey
1/2 large orange, thinly sliced
1 cup orange juice
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground mustard
2 teaspoons whole cloves, divided

Place ham in slow cooker flat/cut side down. Score the end facing up, by using a sharp knife to make criss cross marks about 1/8" deep.

Push about 1 teaspoon of the cloves into top of ham.

In a medium sized saucepan, combine honey, oranges slices, orange juice, sugar, ginger and mustard, and the remaining teaspoon of cloves.

Cook on medium for 5 minutes, until the glaze has reduced in half.

Drizzle half of the glaze mixture over ham, saving 1/2 the glaze to drizzle as it cooks. Cover slow cooker and cook on low 4-5 hours.

Add more glaze every hour of cooking, and in the last hour, add more glaze every 25 minutes.

When ham has developed a crunchy, dark brown glaze, remove from pan and serve immediately.
