The highlight of this recipe is the sauce. I've been using the sauce recipe for years and it is my favorite way to serve ham. You can certainly use this recipe in the oven, just pour the sauce over the ham of your choice and bake as normal.

For the person who used pre-sliced ham and complained about it being too dry; don't blame the slow cooker. The recipe clearly states not to use a pre-sliced (spiral-sliced) ham! I have never cooked a spiral-sliced ham that WASN'T dry, no matter how I cooked it. Will never buy one again!

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!!!!

This was very good. Didn't need to make any changes. I used a Cure 81 boneless ham. Very pleased. I made it for Christmas Day and everyone thought it very good. Farherinlaw said it was the best ham ever tasted.

Made this recipe for my family even though I am not a huge fan of pineapple - however, my family, including me, thought the recipe was great and definitely a keeper.

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!
