Turkey ham, which is cured and smoked turkey thigh meat, offers a taste that is similar to pork ham but with much less fat. Although you can safely eat turkey ham straight from the package, you can also cook it in a slow cooker such as a Crock-Pot, to let it absorb the flavors of a light, sweet glaze. A small turkey ham will emerge from the slow cooker extraordinarily juicy, making it a delicious omelet or casserole ingredient.

Step 1

Rub 1/4 cup brown sugar over the flat bottom portion of the turkey ham.

Step 2

Place the turkey ham in the slow cooker, flat side down. Pour 1/4 cup pineapple juice over the ham.

Step 3

Stir together the remaining brown sugar and pineapple juice to make a paste. Rub the paste over the sides and top of the turkey ham.

Step 4

Cover the slow cooker and cook the turkey ham on low for four to six hours. Slice and serve.
