Every year my grandma asks me to make her ham for the holidays. So, what do I do. . .make her some ham. This recipe is her favorite as well as mine.

Juicy, tender, sliced pieces of ham cooked low and slow in the Crock Pot makes for an easy fuss free meal. And an added benefit, you can save space in the oven to bake something else. This goes great with Instant Pot mashed potatoes.
