    Baked Ham with Coca-Cola Ham Glaze

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 Fully-cooked Ham Half (or wimp-out and use a canned ham)
    Whole Cloves
    Pineapple Rings and Maraschino Cherries

    Ingredients for Glaze
    About 6 ounces of Coke or other Cola
    1 Cup of packed Brown Sugar
    Pineapple or Orange Juice (to taste)
    Ground Cinnamon (to taste)
    Ground Cloves (to taste)
    1 Tablespoon of Butter or Margarine (optional)
    Raisins (optional)


    Mix the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and heat over Medium heat until sugar is melted and ingredients are blended. The glaze should be syrupy-thick. If too thin or runny, add more brown sugar. Set aside for the moment.

    Score the top of the ham diagonally and stud with whole cloves. Garnish with pineapple rings (hold them in place with toothpicks while baking). Place a cherry in the middle of each ring.

    Pour ham glaze over the top. Bake in a 350-degree Fahrenheit oven until heated throughout (about 1 hour for a 3-pound ham).

    While baking, baste the ham occasionally with the glaze, which will mix nicely with the pan drippings. When ham is finished, pour off juices into a server and let guests ladle it on as desired.
