This easy slow cooker ham is cooked with vegetables and a flavorful glaze. The easy glaze is made with honey and spices. Ginger ale is the cooking liquid for this ham, itself making a delicious marinade.

Use a fully cooked ham in this recipe. A fully cooked ham should be cooked to an internal temperature of 140 F. If you are in doubt, check with an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the ham, not touching bone.

Feel free to cook the sweet potatoes separately. Make baked sweet potatoes or a sweet potato casserole to go with the ham.


  • 1 (3-pound) ham, fully cooked

  • 4 to 6 medium sweet potatoes, unpeeled and halved

  • 6 to 8 medium carrots

  • 1 cup ginger ale

Spiced Honey Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Steps to Make It

  1. Scrub the sweet potatoes and trim. Cut in half.

  2. Peel carrots and slice diagonally in 2-inch lengths.

  3. Place vegetables on the bottom of the crock pot, place ham on top and then pour ginger ale overall.

  4. Cover and cook on low for about 5 to 7 hours, or until vegetables are just tender. In a buttered measuring cup mix about 2 tablespoons of liquid from the pot with the glaze ingredients; pour over the ham. Continue cooking on low for 1 hour, basting frequently.

  5. Slice ham into thin slices and serve with the cooked vegetables.



  • If the vegetables are already quite tender, either remove them to a baking dish, cover, and keep them warm in a 170 F to 200 F oven or move the ham to a baking dish and finish cooking while glazing in a 350 F oven for about 30 minutes.
