Last week we were invited to Kroger’s Corporate Office as part of Kroger’s Influencer Council. We flew into the beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio where their corporate office is located. 5 out of the 6 of the sisters attended (Which is rare especially with 3 of us being pregnant). We had an amazing time learning more about Kroger and of course, eating all of their delicious food!
Kroger has some amazing brands such as Private Selection, Murray’s Cheese, Simple Truth, and my new favorite: HemisFares! They pride themselves on using fresh and delicious ingredients! If you have it in your store, you need to try Spicy Paprika Aioli from Hemis Fares. We had it with an amazing Mushroom Frittata and now I need a stock pile of it in my refrigerator.
Kroger is getting ready for the holiday season, so to get us in the holiday spirit we received some beautiful sweaters, got on a caroling bus, and drove to a Kroger store in Oakley. It was hilarious and so much fun!
While we were there, each blogger was asked to make a “Christmas in October” recipe. We decided to make our Grandma’s Delicious Slow Cooker Honey Baked Ham. We did all of our shopping at the Oakley Kroger, then drove to a kitchen to make everything! It was so fun tasting what everyone made!
Our Grandma’s Slow Cooker Honey Baked Ham is so easy to make and was a huge hit with everyone at Kroger! Below are our special tips on how to make it in the slow cooker.
You will need two sheets of tin foil that are 12 inches long. I tucked the ends all around the edges of the crock pot and then gathered them together in the middle and folded the ends down (The plastic around the edges is my slow cooker liner). I did not completely wrap the ham in foil- I just tucked it down the sides of the slow cooker. You want to make a “roof” for your ham.
Once your ham is done, remove it from your slow cooker and make some gravy by mixing 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch with 1 Tablespoon of water. I like to pour gravy over my potatoes and ham!
Even if you don’t have a slow cooker, you can still bake the ham in your oven. Once again, make a tent with aluminum foil and bake 15 to 20 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. Baste the ham once every thirty minutes.
