Below is a recipe for a delicious ham that is sure to be a hit at the dinner table this holiday season!
Ham With Cola and Maple Glaze
1 fully cooked ham, about 6 to 8 pounds
whole cloves, optional
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cola
1 tablespoon brown or Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place ham, fat side up, on rack in a foil-lined roasting pan; score fat and stud with cloves, if desired. Cook at 325° for about 18 minutes per pound, until meat thermometer or instant read thermometer registers 148°. If your ham is labeled Ready to Cook, follow packaging directions. Combine maple syrup, brown sugar, cola, mustard, ginger, and cinnamon in saucepan; bring to a simmer and continue cooking over low heat for about 2 minutes. About 20 minutes before the ham is done, spoon about half of the glaze over top of ham, then about 10 minutes before done, spread remaining glaze over ham.
