I got a great deal on a bone-in spiral ham, and ran across this recipe on the Taste of Home site. Using the slow cooker was great, freed up the oven. We like a sweet glaze on our ham, and this was sweet without being overly so. The crystallized ginger is what really puts it over the top, gives it a little 'warmth" without being spicy. Thanks so much to Sheila C for sharing her recipe!
