Slow Cooker Cranberry Raspberry Glazed Ham

Well, when I imagined this dinner in my head, I thought that it would be good. But I never dreamed that it would turn out this good. I’m not sure what I like better — the way it tastes, or how easy it is to make! It almost seems too good to be true!

I often think that the holidays bring with them so much pressure to prepare the perfect dinner, pull it off seamlessly, and act like it was no big deal. That’s hard! Cooking a special meal for a crowd takes planning and effort at any time of year, but especially during the craziest season when we’re already swamped with social engagements, family gatherings, shopping, and the rest of our daily to-do’s. That’s why this ham is so wonderful…it looks and tastes impressive, but it requires only 10 minutes of prep time and then you don’t have to worry about it again! I even buy the pre-sliced ham so I don’t have to fool with carving it at the last minute. Lazy? Maybe! Genius? Perhaps!

In my opinion, there’s no reason to make things more complicated or stressful than they have to be!

I may not have to tell you this, but the recipe is so simple that you don’t even need to “save” it for a special occasion! I like to make this ham during the week when I don’t have the time to slave over a hot stove. If I’m just feeding my immediate family, I make a smaller ham (about 2-3 pounds) with the same amount of sauce. Just cook a smaller ham for less time so that it doesn’t dry out (about 3 hours total). Then any left-overs go in the refrigerator and we enjoy the meat on sandwiches and in grilled cheese throughout the week!
