We Eat Ham on Turkey Day

Maybe it's because we usually eat Turkey breast year round, but don't eat much ham, but we don't eat turkey on Turkey Day. So, I swiped this recipe from the official Coca-Cola website, 'cause this is similar to how we always cooked our Thanksgiving ham.

5-6 pound ham
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups Coca-Cola
1 cup crushed pineapple (optional)

Wash ham thoroughly. Rub fat side with brown sugar. Pour Coke over ham, carefully trying not to dislodge too much of the sugar. Pour crushed pineapple all over ham. Bake at 450 degrees for 3 hours. Makes 6 servings.

(or if you've got cash to spare you can always go to The Honeybaked Ham company and get one of those yummy hams)

For more recipes using Coca-Cola (including one for Cherry Coke ham - not too sure if I'll try that this year) go to the official Coca-Cola recipes web site.

I tried AB's recipe for city ham a few months ago--using mustard, brown sugar, a bit of bourbon, and some crushed ginger snaps to make a crust after baking the ham--and it was delicious! The only problem we had was figuring out what to do with all that ham.
