I made this today using a 7.5 lb semi boneless ham. It was already fully cooked (and it was smoked) and then frozen. I thawed the ham before putting it in the crockpot. I followed the recipe - put 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar in the bottom of the pot, then set the ham in on top of it, cut side down. I only had enough regular brown sugar for the bottom of the pot, so I used another 1/2 cup of Splenda brown sugar to rub on the ham. Finally, I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon, a bit of nutmeg and a bit of ginger over the top of the sugar layer on the ham (probably about a 1/2 tsp of each). I put the pot on low and let it go for 8 hours. I was surprised at the amount of liquid - the pot was about half full of it. The ham was not sliced and I pulled it out in several chunks, as it was very moist and tender and basically fell off the bone. The taste was outstanding. I made some mashed potatoes and some scalloped apples to serve along with the ham for tonight's dinner. I used a slow cooker liner so clean up was pretty simple as well. We have a ton of ham left over, but we also have a lot of sides...hoping to eat at least another dinner out of this - hopefully maybe 2. I am very picky about crockpot recipes and there are very few I LOVE and then make again. I will be making this one again, however. I was not disappointed. Even my picky 4 year old ate the ham right up, and he doesn't like anything. Definitely a winner in my house.
