Original recipe yields 1 - 8 pound ham

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Use a knife to score a diagonal pattern onto the ham with the lines about 1 inch apart. Place the ham in a large roasting pan and pat brown sugar over the entire surface. Some will fall into the pan, that's okay.
  3. Bake the ham in the preheated oven until the sugar is melting off of it, about 30 minutes. Remove the ham from the oven and pour the cola, grape juice and juice from the pineapple into the pan. Baste the ham with the mixture and return it to the oven.
  4. Continue to bake in the preheated oven, basting every 20 minutes, for about 2 hours. Cut the pineapple rings in half. Remove the ham from the oven and float the pineapple rings in the drippings. Allow the ham to rest for about 10 minutes, then slice and serve with the pineapple and sauce.

I made this Ham for Easter. I used the slow cooker instead of the oven. The type of ham was a fully cooked Spiral Ham and cooked 4 to 5 hours on low. This ham was moist and a wonderful flavor. My husband loves eating the left overs from the fridge. I will make this receipt again, and again.

My dh's grandmother made her ham very similiar and since I couldn't find her recipe I used this one. It came out just as good, dare I say maybe better?! So moist, flavorful...my picky kids loved it. Even my sil who doesn't like ham loved it.

To heyjude615, I bought a bottle of Welch's grape juice and used a cup of that. Made this for Easter dinner and it was delicious. Best ham I've had in a long time. Before making it I though maybe the brown sugar, cola, pineapple juice, and grape juice would end up making the ham too sweet. I couldn't have been more wrong. The sweetness complimented the saltiness of the ham perfectly. I'll definitely be making this again in the future. Thanks for the great recipe.
