SCRUMPTIOUS BROWN SUGAR HAM (slow cooker recipe)

I am loving the slow cooker these days!  I may have mentioned before that I have chronic migraines.  So, many afternoons (a/k/a supper prep time) find me clutching a heat pack to my head and definitely NOT feeling like getting in the kitchen and being creative!  So, the crock pot = my BFF!  Today was time to learn how to do ham in the slow cooker!

Our mouths are watering over here. Here’s how I did it:
Ingredients ► boneless ham roast, 1 cup brown sugar, 8 oz. pineapple juice
Directions  ► 1) Spread 3/4 c. brown sugar over bottom of crock pot; 2) Put ham roast on top of brown sugar layer, flat side down; 3) Rub remaining 1/4 c. brown sugar all over ham roast; 4) Gently pour pineapple juice around ham (pouring a little bit over it, but you don’t want to wash all the brown sugar off!) 5) You can cook it on low for 5-6 hours or high for 2 hours (that’s what I did).
I’m pairing this with creamy whole kernel corn (I combine 1 can cream corn and 1 can kernel corn), jalapeno black-eyed peas with bacon and angel biscuits (frozen).  Plus, my daughter insisted on making chocolate fudge brownies (she made me let her – ha!). All in all, a very yummy dinner shared with my fam – what a blessing!
