"I followed recipe, but used a pre-sliced 6 lb ham. THE HAM CAME OUT VERY VERY DRY> During the 6 hours on low all of the moisture was cooked out of the ham. I won't use slow cooker for ham ever again!!!!"

"Good, but we did it with a bone-in ham, a 4lb, and it just didn't carve up right. I'm sure it was the ham, but I'm for sure going to try it again with the boneless ham. The sauce is great!"

"Delicious!! I had a 8lb bone in ham that I wanted to bake. It wouldn't fit in the slow cooker, so I cooked it at 325 for 2.5 or so hours. Fantastic!!"

"I made this for Easter using a bone-in ham. It didn't fit in my slow cooker so I used an oven cooking bag. I followed the sauce recipe and poured it over the ham and cooked according to the cooking bag instructions. Wonderfully easy and delicious! It was a huge success. Thanks!"
