It’s so easy to get the same flavor at home.

My husband is the Honey Baked Ham store’s number one fan, without question. When their catalog arrives in early November, it’s as if Christmas has come early for him – his eyes light up as he carefully thumbs through the pages while drooling over all of the glossy images of sugary crusted honey-glazed hams. Of course, that’s only because he knows how good that ham actually tastes, and while we all tease him about it, we understand – their ham is amazing! Like with anything that good, it’s always a win to be able to make it right in your own kitchen any time you want, on your own terms, with your own ingredients so here’s our slow cooker version that’s super simple to make but complete with all of the crisp honeyed edges you could want.

Serves 10
15m prep time
4h cook time


1 bone-in spiral sliced ham (6 to 8 lbs)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup honey
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt


Trim ham as necessary and place in slow cooker.

In a small bowl, stir together butter and honey, then rub over ham, pushing mixture into slices. Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours.

Towards the end of the cooking time, preheat oven broiler on high and line a roasting pan with foil.

In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, garlic powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, paprika, and salt. Press half of the mixture into the top of the ham.

Broil until bubbly and caramelized, about 3 minutes, then remove from oven.

Add remaining sugar mixture to a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of the ham liquid from the slow cooker (or water). Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Let boil 1 minute, then remove from the heat. Brush glaze over ham, then broil once more briefly, just 1-2 minutes.

Let ham rest at least 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
