Slow Cooker Ham with Honey Mustard Glaze

Bone-In Crock Pot Ham with Honey Mustard Glaze

  • Author: Melissa | My Homemade Roots
  • Total Time: 35 minute


A juicy and flavorful ham with a honey mustard glaze made in the crockpot.


Units Scale
  • 710 pound fully cooked ham portion with the bone-in
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup prepared mustard
  • Juice and zest of 1 small orange (or half of a large orange)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (you will only need this if you are making gravy from the ham juices).


  1. If needed, trim the ham of excess fat and rind. You won’t need to do any trimming with a spiral-cut ham. Check to see if there is a piece of plastic covering the exposed piece of bone and discard it.
  2. Fit the ham into the crockpot. Ideally, you will place the ham cut side down, but fit it in any way you can. For a spiral-cut ham, I find it works well to place it in the crock with the sliced side facing up.
  3. To make the glaze, combine the brown sugar, honey, mustard, orange juice, and orange zest. Pour this over the ham. Use your hands or a basting brush to cover the ham with the glaze mixture.
  4. Cover with the lid and cook for 4-6 hours on low, until the ham reaches a safe internal temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit, as measured by a meat thermometer. It may take a little bit less or a little longer depending on how hot your crockpot gets and how big the ham is. Baste the ham with the several juices 2 or 3 times during the cooking time.
  5. When the ham reaches temperature, carefully remove the ham to a platter and tent with foil until ready to serve.
  6. To make ham gravy from the ham juices and drippings, carefully spoon the juice and glaze mixture from the bottom of the pot into a saucepan. Mix the cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of cold water or chicken broth and whisk into the juices in the saucepan. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the gravy comes to a gentle boil. Boil for another 1-2 minutes until the gravy thickens. Remove from heat and service on the side with the ham.
