We always have Turkey for Thanksgiving, but for Christmas, it’s all about the ham. I used to bake our holiday ham, but a couple of years ago, I started making it slow cooker, and it was so incredibly good that I haven’t gone back. Plus, it frees up valuable oven space, which is good since we have side dishes that need to be baked. So this year, we’re having Cranberry Orange Crock-Pot Ham. It’s super easy, and it tastes absolutely amazing!
I made this cranberry orange glazed ham for the first time last year, and it such a huge hit that we decided to have it again. Like most meals made in the slow cooker, its also super easy to prepare, which makes it perfect for any holiday dinner. Even though I love to cook, I’d rather be spending this time with the family!
I just combined some orange marmalade with cranberry sauce, added a little water and let the Crock-Pot do the work. How easy is that?!
How to Make Cranberry Orange Crock-Pot Ham
Cranberry Orange Crock-Pot Ham
- 1 large boneless ham
- 1/2 jar orange marmalade (try to find all natural, if possible)
- 1 can jellied cranberry sauce
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Add olive oil to bottom of large slow cooker
- Place ham in slow cooker
- Pour cranberry sauce, marmalade and water over ham
- Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or until warm, with temperature of at least 140 to 150 degrees
The tartness of the cranberries combined with the sweetness of the orange marmalade makes an incredibly flavorful sauce that’s slightly tangy and not too sweet. And, it pairs very well with the ham.
This is a very forgiving recipe, and I’ve even cooked a ham on high before without any problems. Crock-Pots rule!
