    dlboylan, yes I've poured it over a spiral sliced ham in a crockpot, and it turns out amazing!

    Will this work for sliced ham in a crock pot. Maybe pour the mixture over the ham? It sounds delicious!

    First, my husband hates cranberries, but when I had this glaze on the ham, he said throw every other recipe away, this is excellent. I did not use the mustard, because I did not have any. It is very, very good.
