Food | Slow Cooker Ham with Maple Brown Sugar Glaze |

Melissa Mondragon, owner of No. 2 Pencil, Cook, Bake, and Create, shows us how to make this simple and delicious glazed ham that will be perfect for your Easter table.




7.5 pound unsliced, bone-in ham

1 cup of water

For the Glaze:

1/2 cup of dark brown sugar

1/2 cup of pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons of brown mustard

2 tablespoons of cornstarch

freshly ground pepper to taste



  1. Start by trimming excess fat and skin from the ham.
  2. Use a paring knife to slice a grid pattern into the ham.
  3. Add ham and 1 cup of water to slow cooker.
  4. Heat for 5-6 hours on low, until heated through.
  5. Remove ham from slow cooker and let rest for 20 minutes.
  6. Prepare glaze.
  7. Bring pure maple syrup, dark brown sugar, mustard, pepper and cornstarch to a boil.
  8. Let boil 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly until mixture starts to thicken.
  9. Let glaze cool for about 5 minutes.
  10. Pat ham dry and spoon glaze over ham.
  11. Heat ham under broiler 5-7 minutes until glaze has caramelized.

Note: If glaze cools too long and is overly thick, just reheat to make pourable.
