▢8 lb bone-in spiral sliced half ham
▢2 Tbsp butter, melted
▢3 Tbsp honey
▢1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
▢1/2 tsp seasoned salt
▢1/2 tsp onion powder
▢1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
▢1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
▢1/4 tsp ground ginger
▢1/4 tsp ground cloves
▢1/4 tsp paprika
▢pinch of allspice
Trim ham if needed, then place in slow cooker. Combine melted butter and honey, then massage over ham, getting in between the slices a little. Cover and cook on LOW 4-5 hours.
At the end of the cooking time, preheat broiler to HIGH, and line a roasting pan with heavy duty aluminum foil.
Combine sugar, seasoned salt, onion powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, paprika and allspice in a small bowl. Pat half of the sugar mixture over the top of the ham.
Broil for several minutes, until bubbly and caramelized, then remove from oven.
To a small saucepan, add remaining sugar mixture. Add 3 Tbsp of either water or ham juices from bottom of the slow cooker. A combination of water/ham juice and bourbon is a nice alternative! Stir, and heat to a boil. Boil for about a minute, then remove from heat.
Brush or pour glaze over the ham, then broil again for a minute or two (careful… don’t let it burn!). Remove from oven and let ham rest for 5-10 minutes.
Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
To Cook in Oven:
Preheat oven to 275 F degrees. Adjust oven rack to the lower third position. Line a roasting pan or large dutch oven with a long strip of foil (heavy duty works best).
Position ham flat side down in center of pan.
Brush with honey/butter mixture, if possible, getting some in between the slices.
Bring sides of the foil up over the ham and cover loosely. If needed, add a sheet of foil over the top.
Bake approximately 12-15 minutes per pound. An 8 lb ham will take approximately 1 hour 30-40 minutes.
