Southern Baked Ham

Comment on this recipe

Green beans with onions and potato salad or macaroni and cheese accompany this very well.

Ingredients

10-14 pound country ham or smoked ham
2 can (12 ounces) Coca-Cola
Pineapple rings
Red cherries
Cloves for garnish

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Place the ham in a large heavy covered pan. Pour 1 can of Coca-Cola over the ham. Add 1/2 inch of water. Cover tightly and bake for 1 hour. Remove the cover. Pour the other can of Coca-Cola over the ham. Scored the cooked ham in a large crisscross pattern. Place a pineapple ring with a cherry pierced by a clove in each scored segment. Leave uncovered and bake for another 2 hours. Let the ham sit in a warm place for 30 minutes before serving so that it will carve easily.
