1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

How to make Copycat HoneyBaked Ham
Step 1: If needed, trim the half before placing them in the slow cooker. Mix the melted butter and honey, then massage the mixture on the ham. Make sure to get the mixture in between slices. Put the lid on and set it to cook for 4 to 5 hours on low.
Step 2: Preheat the broiler to high at the end of the cooking time. Using heavy-duty aluminum foil, line a roasting pan.
Step 3: In a small bowl, whisk the sugar, seasoned salt, onion powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, paprika, and allspice. On top of the ham, pat half of the sugar mixture.
Step 4: Place in the broiler for a couple of minutes until bubbly and caramelized.
Step 5: Add the rest of the sugar mixture to a small saucepan. Then, add 3 tbsp water or the ham juices from the bottom of the slow cooker. If desired, you can mix both! Stir well and bring everything to a boil. Let the mixture boil for about 1 minute before taking off the heat.
Step 6: Over the ham, brush or pour the glaze. Broil for another minute or two.
Step 7: Before serving, allow the ham to rest for about 5 to 10 minutes. You can serve the ham either warm or cold.
To Make in the Oven:
Prepare the oven and preheat it to 275 degrees F. To the lower third position, adjust the oven rack. Using a long strip of foil, line a roasting pan or large dutch oven. In the center of the pan, place the ham (flat side down). Then, brush the ham with honey/butter mixture, getting the mixture if possible in between the slices. Over the ham, bring the sides of the foil and loosely cover the ham. Add a sheet of foil on the top if needed. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 12 to 15 minutes (per pound). Note that an 8-pound of ham will take about 1 hour and 30 to 40 minutes to cook. Resume with the recipe as directed.
