Wildly delicious and terribly unhealthy, this is my adaption to the original Coca-Cola Ham  recipes. I make this every year and it never fails to impress.

Ingredients

  • ½ ham (5-6 pounds)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups Coca-Cola®
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple (optional)
  • 1 tsp Whole cloves
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

Preparation

  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hr  45 min
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 1 hr  30 min
  1. Wash ham thoroughly.
  2. Rub fat side with brown sugar.
  3. Add orange zest soy sauce and crushed pineapple to  Coca-Cola.
  4. Pour combined liquids over ham.
  5. push cloves into ham, spacing about 1 inch apart.
  6. Bake at 450 degrees for 3 hours.
  7. Garnish with pineapple rings.

Tip: don’t throw out the bone! It’s a fantastic addition to beans (especially lima), soups and essential to any collard or turnip greens. Even if you don’t want to use it right away, you can freeze and keep up to 6 months.
