"We fixed a ham in the crock pot last weekend and we used this recipe. It was simple and turned out fantastic. I went by Arden's comments and only cooked the ham for 4 hours on low. I use a 5 lb. ham and 4 hours seemed to be perfect."
"I found that cooking 4 hours on low was just right. Aroma flavor and texture were wonderful. My guests gave it rave reviews. I would definitely use this recipe again when preparing ham. One change I made was not to add black pepper."
