Slow Cooker Pineapple Glazed Ham for Easter

Teaching the kids about Easter is always a fun time.  The meaning of all the events and what Jesus went through before dying on the cross and raising from the dead three days later can be a hard concept to grasp for adults, much less for kids.

We incorporate songs, crafts and of course Bible stories.  As I said in yesterday's post we are also in preparation for the Seder Dinner at our church and learning about how the Israelites escaped the Egyptians and set off for the promised land.  This time of year plays a huge role in reinforcing and perpetuating the things that we believe.

With all of those preparations underway and thinking about our own Easter dinner for the family I have started to plan what we will have.  Yesterday I talked about a proposed menu for us to have a gluten-free Easter and one of those items was a glazed ham.

Ham is an Easter staple around our house and this year won't be any different.  I will be cooking this again for Easter and my family can't wait until then.  This ham was gone the day I made it and they are begging for more.  I served this ham with a play on fried rice and a side salad.  Next week will be the same ham but with different sides.

Pineapple Glazed Ham

1 Ham, pre-cooked, bone-in, spiral cut
1 1/2 Cups of Brown sugar
1 Fresh Pineapple cut into bits, saving juice too.

Cover the bottom of the crock with 1 cup of the brown sugar.
Place ham on top of the brown sugar in the crockpot.
Add the pineapple bits with the juice. 
Sprinkle ham and pineapple with another 1/2 cup brown sugar.
Cover and cook on low for 8-9  hours, or on high for 4 hours.
