Instant Pot Ham with Apple Cider and Brown Sugar

There’s something sentimental to me about a spiral cut ham on Christmas day. I don’t actually eat ham too often. So when I do, I want it to be amazing! I had an idea of what flavors I wanted to try for an Instant Pot ham. And it’s always a great feeling when you try something and it works perfectly on the first try! That’s what happened here and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    Does this actually heat the ham well enough in only 1 minute??

      Definitely. The ham is already fully cooked. It will take about 20 minutes for the pressure to come up, then another 20 minutes for the pressure to release. So that’s almost 40 minutes of actual cook time. Works perfectly.

    How many does this serve? And if I got a larger one how much would I need to change the time?

      That would really depend on what size ham you end up with. I’m not great at estimating serving sizes. An no, you would not need to change the cook time – regardless of size of ham.

      No, I don’t think so. There should be plenty.
