I got a HUGE compliment from my husband!
He told me that the ham I baked for Christmas dinner was the best ham he had ever had!
BTW – he turned 50 this month, so that means the best ham in FIFTY years!
(Happy Birthday REP!)
It was a good Ham – for the first time ever, we ended up eating the whole whopping thing.
We had ham sandwiches, fried ham in biscuits and chopped ham in farmer omelets, etc.
Made me feel very frugal. 🙂
So if you have a hankering for a good ham (would be great for Sunday dinner) or just a great compliment from your hubby (or wife). You need to give this very delicious but very easy ham a try.
Best Ham Ever
(adapted from South Your Mouth)
- 6-8 lb. bone-in, cured ham
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup prepared dijon mustard
- 1 orange, cut into wedges
- 1½ cup of coke
- 1 Large turkey baking bag
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Score the Ham 1/4 inches down in a diamond patter.
Place the ham in the baking bag on it’s bottom (cut side out). Place bag on a roasting pan.
Mix mustard and sugar together in a small bowl until combined. Spread mixture over the whole ham (in the bag).
Place orange wedges around the base of the ham and pour coke around the bottom on the ham (not over the top – you do not want to wash your sugar mixture up.
With a puff of air into the bag, close the opening tightly and with a sharp knife, cut 3, 1 inch slits on the top of the bag.
Cook for 1.5 – 2 hours.
Let ham rest for 30 minutes before serving.
