This ham always turns out juicy and flavorful. It melts in your mouth. So good it just disappears every time.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Your holiday meal will be a little sweeter when you serve this delicious and simple baked ham. The glaze, that's sweet, citrusy, and tangy all at once, is what makes this ham special. Poking holes allows the glaze to seep into the ham while basting. The cola and orange marmalade flavors permeate the meat. As the ham bakes, the glaze gets thick and delicious. Don't let it go to waste... after slicing the ham drizzle a little of it over the slices.

Note: There is a lot of liquid in this baked ham. Besides using a deep pan, we recommend placing a sturdy baking sheet under the roasting pan. This will make taking it in/out of the oven to baste easier. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
