One thing I love about living in Oregon is the fall weather. The leaves are changing color and the rainy season has started. I love to prepare comforting meals like this one when the weather turns. I really like cooking with sweet potatoes, I try to sneak them into as many slow cooker recipes as I can. What I loved about this recipe is that the flavors I added for the sweet potatoes are perfect for flavoring the ham as well.

I start with these beautiful ingredients: Black forest ham, sliced sweet potatoes, pineapple rings, pineapple juice, brown sugar and cinnamon.

This slow cooker is a Crock-Pot® 5-in-1 Multi-Cooker, I am really enjoying this slow cooker! I love the rectangular design.

I cook this for 7 hours on low. It is just enough time to get the ham warmed through and the sweet potatoes tender.

I take the ham out and slice it on a cutting board, then I put the ham back in the slow cooker to keep warm.

I made mashed potatoes to go with this, other than that all this meal needed was some soft dinner rolls! My husband loves leftover ham, with this recipe there is plenty.

    Perfectly moist, fall-off the bone, no need to slice ham. Followed recipe exactly except I used a 6.5 pound ham for lots of leftovers.

  2. TB says:

    Can you make this with a butt portion bone-in? I have 8lbs. Would it taken longer?

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      7 hours on low should still do it for that sized of ham. Your basically warming the ham, but trying to get the sweet potatoes tender.

  3. Becky says:

    My ham is pre-cooked (maybe they all are!?). Do I still want to cook it for 7 hours?? I just don’t want it to dry out!

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      They all are in the US. You’ll have to cook it that long to get the sweet potatoes tender. If you don’t do the sweet potatoes, you can get away with 4-5 hours on low.
