Oh My YUM! That is what you will be saying when you try this Crock-pot Mountain Dew Ham with Pineapples & Cherries! This is a family favorite in my house. Even my picky kiddo loves ham!
What I love the most about this recipe is how simple it is. It only takes a few minutes to prep, and then you walk away! Later on, magically your dinner is ready to go, and you don’t have to heat up your oven.
What You Need:
- Ham Butt (most Shanks wont fit in your crock-pot)
- Can of Pineapple
- Jar of Maraschino Cherries
- 2 Small Cans of Mountain Dew (7.5 oz Mini Cans)

1 – Line your crock-pot for easy cleanup.
2 – Add full can of pineapple, including all of the juice.

5 – Place the ham down on top of the cherries and pineapples, and then add brown sugar around the whole ham.
6 – Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low on 6-8 hours (times vary based on ham size). You can verify that it is done by placing a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the ham to get 140° for an internal temp.
