With Easter rolling around it is time to for another ham recipe. Hence you are viewing my new ham recipe, Slow Cooker Spiral Ham with Homemade Teriyaki Sauce. In addition to the ham recipe, I wanted to develop my own teriyaki sauce without loading it down with sugar. With this intention in mind, I had to figure out a way to keep the sweetness of teriyaki sauce. Consequently, my first attempt at reducing the sugar was a disaster. I simply did not add any sweetness.
What was I thinking? The teriyaki sauce was so bitter. Therefore, I had to add some sweetness in the way of agave. Just one tablespoon was enough to give the teriyaki sauce a slight sweetness and no bitterness. Next I wanted a perfectly cooked slow cooker spiral ham, no dryness allowed. That meant I absolutely positively was not going to cook it for 8 hours. Instead I found that 3 to 4 hours in the slow cooker fully heats the ham but still leaves it moist.
Put Slow Cooker Spiral Ham with Homemade Teriyaki Sauce on your Easter menu. Be sure to check the temperature of the ham at three hours of cooking. You may or may not need the additional hour of cooking time.
