  • 6-7 pound Ham Fully cooked, Spiral cut
  • 1/4 tsp Red chili flakes Optional
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1 can Pineapples Crushed, chunks or tidbits, 20 oz. can
  • 1 cup Brown sugar


  1. Place ham in the crockpot

  2. Sprinkle a dash of red chili flakes, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp ginger powder all over the ham.

  3. Then, pour the can of pineapples with the juices gently over the ham. 

  4. Sprinkle 1/2 cup brown sugar on top of the ham. Don't worry if some of it falls over to the side. 

  5. Cook on low for 4 hours. 

  6. In the final 30 minutes, sprinkle the remaining 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp ginger powder, a dash of red chili flakes (optional), 1/2 cup brown sugar on top of the ham. This gives the ham a nice caramelized crust, color and flavor on the top. Cover and continue cooking on low heat. 

  7. Serve slices of ham with pineapples and juices. Enjoy!
