Turkey Hamming it up!

I love Jennie O products, and I'm especially grateful they have created so many turkey products since the only meat Wynn can have is turkey. I've seen Jennie O's Turkey Ham many times at the grocery store but I've never purchased it, because honestly I just didn't know what i would do with it and..well..it sounded a little odd. A ham made of turkey? It seemed a little weird, but I finally decided to try it..and I'm glad I did! This is SO simple and only 3 ingredients. Try it- you won't be sorry!
This recipe works perfectly with a "turkey ham"but will also work very well with a boneless ham!


Brown Suagr and Pineapple cured Turkey Ham
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Corn Free, Rice Free, Egg Free

2 lb Jennie O Turkey Ham or boneless ham
1 1/3 cup pineapple juice
1 1/3 cup light brown sugar
Crockpot

1. Grease the bottom of your crockpot with Pam Grilling spray (doesn't contain soy) or spray of choice.
2. Pierce the top and bottom of your "ham" with a knife several times ( to allow juices and brown sugar to seep in your meat).
3. Divide your brown sugar in half. pack 1/2 of your brown sugar on the flat side of your meat. hold it onto the meat with your hand, and  flip it, placing it flat side down in the crockpot. Its okay if some of it falls out to the side.
4. Pack the rest of your brown sugar on the top of the ham. 
5. Pour the pineapple juice all around the sides of your crockpot (not on top of the ham). 
6. Cook on high for 4 hrs. Remove ham and slice it, then place it back in the crock pot.
7. Cook an additional 30 min-1 hour to allow juices to soak in every slice!

This sauce will thicken as it cools. For a thicker serving sauce, just turn off cooker and allow it to sit for about 30 min. 

This tastes great on rolls smothered in sauce or on its own with a side of sauteed green beans. You can also use leftovers for a salad, casserole, omelet or sandwich the next day.
