My mom always made our hams this way, and I have to say they were deliciously- delicious! We always had lots of compliments and asking for the recipe! We usually made it for Easter, but occasionally we would make it for Christmas Eve, or New Year's Day either. Great served hot with twice baked or mashed potatoes and a squash, or green leafy side- or even served cold with a potato salad which we liked to do on Easter with a picnic!

  2. Mix together the orange juice, coke and brown sugar. Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the ham. Bake at 350F for about 40 minutes. Pour remaining glazing over the top and bake another 20 minutes.
