in season: secret ingredient ham

ham is sure to be on the menu this season for many of you. if you are at a loss on how to prepare it, look no further. i have worked to perfect this recipe over the years, and i'm even willing to share with you my secret ingredient, Coca Cola.

{secret ingredient ham}

3-7 lb ham [i don't get the pre-cut kind, because it doesn't seem come out as moist]
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 cups coca cola
1 cup crushed pinapple and juice
1 tbsp dijon mustard

-place all ingredients but the ham in a bowl and whisk.

for crockpot: place ham in crockpot and pour mixture on top. cook on low for 4-8 hours or high for 2-4 hours.

for baking in the oven: bake in oven covered in a roasting pan, 18-24 minutes per pound of ham at 350 degrees.
pour juice over the ham every so often.

This Coca Cola ham is so good - we're having this for our Christmas dinner along with the cheesy potato casserole everyone loves...(not very original or fancy but both family favorites). Be sure to use real Coke - Diet Coke doesn't work as well in this recipe...

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
