Talk about good! Every year at Christmas my Hubby gets an enormous whole ‘bone-in’ ham from one of his clients. This year I decided to make a little different glaze than the standard brown sugar kind. I know lots of you probably already cook your ham with coke, but I always used ginger ale. Well, not this time… this time I used rum and coke. It was very good!
Country Ham With A Rum And Coke Glaze
1 ham of choice
4 cans of coke
1 cup rum
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
2 limes (juice and zest)
1 tsp pepper
Heat oven to 325°F. In a large roasting pan place the ham then pour 2 cans of coke and a 1/2 cup of rum over the ham. Place in the oven and cook for about 15-18 minutes per pound. In a sauce pan, add the additional cans of coke, the rest of the rum, Dijon mustard and lime zest and juice. Bring to a simmer on the stove and cook on low for about 20 minutes. When the ham is finished, add any remaining ham juice to the simmering pot and reduce again. Slice the ham and spoon over the glaze… Delicious!
