Peach & Ginger Slow Cooker Ham

November, 2018

This sweet and savoury ham is easy to prepare, and frees up the oven for all the fixings. Peach and ginger mingle with zesty Dijon for a subtle sweet and spicy surprise.

  • 8–10 lbs cooked ham, spiral-cut or shank portion
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup peach preserves (or apricot)
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp thyme, finely chopped, plus extra sprigs for garnish
  • ½ cup water


  1. Combine the mustard, peach preserves, ginger, thyme and water in a small saucepan. (Tip: Peel and freeze ginger ahead of time for easy grating.)
  2. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, and cook until the glaze comes together, about 5–10 minutes.
  3. Bring the ham to room temperature and place in the slow cooker. Make sure the lid is tightly closed.
  4. If using a spiral-cut ham, pull the slices slightly apart.
  5. If using a shank portion, score the top in a cross-hatch pattern to help the glaze soak in.
  6. Pour the glaze over the ham, covering as much of the ham as possible.
  7. Cook the ham on low for 4–5 hours. Baste the ham with the glaze every so often until cooking time is up. Serve warm.
