Easter Ham in a Crockpot
with Fruited Cranberry Sauce
adapted from Good Cheap Eats

one large half ham, that fits in your largest crockpot
1 cup apple juice or cider
1/2 can whole berry cranberry sauce - or the other kind, your preference
1/2 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained
all of the juice from the canned pineapple
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Place ham, cut side down into crockpot. Stir canned cranberry sauce, pineapple, apple juice, and pineapple juice together and pour over the ham. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove ham from crockpot and place in roasting pan, on its side.

Heat the oven to 375. Combine brown sugar, Dijon mustard, ground cloves, and enough of the juices from the crockpot to create a paste. Spread paste over ham. Place in hot oven to glaze, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve.

Combine the remaining cranberry, pineapple, a can of drained mandarin oranges, and 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger if you like ginger. Variation: add fresh ginger, and/or lemon and orange zest in it; they are really good if you have them. Chill well, can be made several days ahead. (I always make mine ahead and add the mandarin orange juice to the crock pot with the ham.) Serve fruited cranberry sauce with the ham.

Well I am looking at all the grocery ads online today, trying to find out which store has butter on sale.

And I am running into many Easter specials for ham & turkey.

Some I put on my grocery list to print, only to take them off because I already have a ham and a frozen turkey breast.

Finally I decided: if I already have this stuff, why not cook it for Resurrection Day? I can take some to a friend's house and the rest will be batchcooked for me at home, which will save so much time later.

So, I'm cooking and I'm going all-out, yee haw!!! Turkey breast, ham, sweet potato casserole, I'm going to make a pineapple cranberry mandarin orange sauce/jelly for more like Spring instead of typical Thanksgiving-like cranberry sauce.

I will also have a couple highly nutritious veggies and a green salad. My friend loves Brussels Sprouts the way I make them, cooked in balsamic vinegar and butter. So I'll have those plus a couple mixed veggies and salad. On my plate I'll have normal portions of veggies and small portions or just a taste, of everything else. And happily, a TON of leftovers, I won't have to cook for a looooooooong time.

At the beginning of this thread I said I reserved the right to change my mind. And I have!

What better day is there in all the year to celebrate, than Resurrection Day?

GRANDCRACKER thanks now I know what you mean, I have seen those Nesco (and other brands) big electric roasters you are talking about. Being single I never bought one of those; but wow wouldn't that be a great way to save oven space for other things if you had a big housefull.

How many times per year would you say you use your big electric roaster? Just curious.

Oh my mistake, sorry; I thought you said you used one of your 2 crockpots for the ham. Thanks for your reply. I roast mine too since it won't fit in the crockpot.

GRANDCRACKER may I ask what size crockpot you use for ham? I am shopping for a new crockpot; ham butt or shank portion on the bone never fits in my round 5.5 qt Rival (oldie). I am thinking of an oval 6 or 7 qt and wondered how big yours is if you do ham in it. I know just the oval shape, alone, will help alot . . . definitely only buying ovals from here on out, but this 5.5qt one was given to me when my other one that was exactly like it except for color, died.

Children are grown and so are most of the grand children. We have started cooking the turkey and dressing and they bring the other dishes. My husband cooks the turkey in the oven.

For me, I haven't really decided yet; I am leaning towards leftovers / regular meal planning since it will be just me this year to feed on Resurrection Day. If someone from the team, or one of the bloggers I subscribe to, inspire me otherwise then I reserve the right to change my mind.
