Baked Glazed Ham

Yield 16 servings
By preparing this ham at the beginning of the month, you'll have enough left over to use in two casserole recipes and two sandwich recipes.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 (8-pound) smoked fully cooked ham half, trimmed
  • 1 (12-ounce) can cola soft drink
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar plum or apricot preserves
  • 1/3 cup orange juice

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients. Score fat on ham in a diamond pattern. Sprinkle ham with sugar mixture, and place in a lightly greased shallow roasting pan. Pour cola into pan.

  2. Bake, covered, at 325° for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes.

  3. Stir together preserves and orange juice. Spoon 3/4 cup glaze over ham, and bake 15 more minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 140°. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining glaze.
