Why I Love This Recipe

I just took this ham to a church lunch. Our church is very small and there were about 15 people at lunch. I made a 10 1/2 lb ham and there is not a bite left (there was also chicken and turkey). It was wonderful. Based on a Nigella Lawson recipe.

You will never eat a better ham.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 10 lb picnic ham (not precooked)
2 2 liter bottles of Coke (lots of times I use the store brand. Don't use Pepsi, it dosn't taste right.
2 large onions cut in half (no need to peel)
6 whole cloves
2-3 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoon Dry mustard (Colemans is the best if you have it)
2 tablespoons Demerara suger (you can get this at Wal-Mart)
or light brown sugar (the Demerara is the best)


Place ham in a stockpot and pour both bottles of Coke over.

Add onions and cloves.

Bring to a boil and then turn down to a low simmer and cook for about 3 1/2 hours covered.

Heat oven to 500 degrees.

Remove ham from cooking liquid and place in a roasting pan fat side up.

Using a knife, trim off the skin and some of the fat.

Leave a thin layer of fat on the ham.

Pour the molasses over the ham.

Mix the suger and mustard togather.

Pat onto molasses.

Place in the oven for 10-15 min, or until the sugar has melted and is browm and bubbly.
