We serve this dish during the holidays because everyone is crazy about it. But it makes it to the table all year long because it’s super simple to prepare. —Terry Roberts, Yorktown, Virginia

  • 1 fully cooked boneless ham (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained


  1. Place ham in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small saucepan, mix cornstarch and lemon juice until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Pour over ham, covering completely.
  2. Cook, covered, on low 6-8 hours (a thermometer inserted in ham should read at least 140°).
Editor’s Note: This recipe is not recommended for a spiral-sliced ham.
