Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 cups packed brown sugar
1 (about 8 lb) bone-in picnic ham
1 can (6-oz) crushed pineapple, optional
Pineapple rings for serving, if desired

Place 1 1/2 cups of the brown sugar over the bottom to a slow cooker/crockpot.  Place the ham over the brown sugar, flat side down.  Trim bottom a little if needed to be able to fit lid over cooker.

Using your hands, rub the remaining brown sugar all over the ham.  Add the pineapple, if using.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.  (This time is for a picnic ham.  It is too long for a spiral sliced ham!)
