Note: This recipe is for a precooked ham. I buy those all the time to save time. They still take about 2 hours to cook in the oven. That is a long time that you need to plan for before eating dinner. I never have two hours unless it is the weekend but I often crave ham so I figured out how to cook a ham in the pressure cooker.
It is actually very easy. You will need the following items.
Optional Potatoes and herbs if you want to cook your meal together.
1. If you are cooking your potatoes with your ham. The put in the potatoes first.
2. Pour in the 1 cup of water (Whether you have potatoes or veggies or not.)
3. Place a large sheet of foil on your counter (It must be big enough to wrap your ham)
4. Put your ham in the foil. Do not wrap the top. You will leave it open to pour in your sugar and pineapple mixture once it is in the pressure cooker.
5. Mix the packet ingredients or the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg with 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple. You can use the pineapples later or put them on the ham in the pressure cooker. Our kids like their pineapples not cooked with their ham. I like mine cooked so I do half and half.
7. Place the foil wrapped ham on top of the sling
8. Make sure the foil will contain the liquid you are about to add.
9. Pour in the liquid mixture.
10. Close the Foil
11. Shut the Pressure cooker
12. Turn it to 10 minutes for your pre-cooked ham that is 6-7 lbs
13. Let the pressure release when it is done
14. Use your mitts to take off the top
15. Unwrap your ham and let it cool
I do this during the week so I can use the ham to make other recipes. These are some of my favorite recipes with ham.

My daughter begged for a huge bunch on bananas last week, with promises that she would eat every single one of them. Well, 6 days later, guess what? We had 4 very ripe bananas left, that were not going to get eaten. I hate wasting money so I had to think of something to do with them! It occurred to me that I have never tried to make banana nut bread! Now I have to admit something, I am NOT a baker. I don’t have a fancy mixer (although I do stare at them longingly in the store..) and I love my cakes from a box. When I looked up banana nut bread recipes a lot of them called for “cutting in cold butter” and other things that just weren’t going to work for me, and I got to thinking that it probably doesn’t for a lot of other people either, so I wanted to share this Super Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe with you guys! It takes about 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes in the oven, that’s it!
I love a big, green salad, especially in the spring. Romaine, arugula, mixed baby greens, spinach, escarole, even cabbages, and good ole iceberg make crisp and healthy salads with limitless possibilities. I decided to tell you how to make A spinach salad. Some of my favorite salad ingredients include something salty, something crunchy, something sweet, and something cheesy. Springtime calls for salad as an accompaniment or a main dish. You can top almost any salad with grilled chicken, thinly sliced beef, or even shellfish and you’ll have a filling and nutritious meal.
Spinach is plentiful right now, so spinach salad is quite popular in my house. There are quite a few ways to serve a spinach salad that satisfies both sweet and savory tastes. To indulge your sweet tooth, make spinach salad with sliced fresh strawberries, red onion, toasted slivered almonds, and crumbled bleu cheese. Toss with a raspberry pecan dressing just before serving. My friend, Kelly, brought this salad to me when I was under the weather and it was delicious. If you wanted to make a more savory salad, start with fresh baby spinach and add crumbled bacon, slightly steamed asparagus, feta or goat cheese, and a light vinaigrette. Either of these spinach salads is sure to please, and these salads are budget friendly since they are made with spring veggies and fruit.
My go-to spinach salad calls for ingredients I generally have on hand all year. My Spinach Salad has salty bacon, crunchy walnuts, sweet dried cranberries, and creamy bleu cheese. Give it a try and experiment with your own favorite toppings. Top with leftover grilled meats and fish for a more filling meal. Salad is never boring; it can change each time you serve those healthy, vibrant greens.
