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.

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


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.

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

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.
