I have the same question. Bottom side down?? Is it fat side up like most cooking instructions?

The type of ham Katie calls for is typically sold pre-sliced, but the slices don't go through all the way to the bottom to keep the meat together for cooking. When she refers to the "bottom", she is referring to the part that is not pre-cut. If your ham is not pre-cut, you can place it in the slow cooker however you like. Hope that helps!

Yeah, I wish the people who write these recipes would be clear. The word "bottom" in this case can be subjective. To me the bottom of a ham is the fat part.

Hi Tami, Thank you for the feedback. We do our best to make sure each recipe is triple checked before it's posted, but sometimes we get stuck in the "food blogger" bubble and forget that not everyone spends hours a day creating and executing recipes. I'll update the recipe accordingly for future readers. All the best, Amber | managing editor, food fanatic
