Easter Ham

Easter Ham is a tradition for many people. I am not sure why but it is. There are several great recipes on line that show a myriad of ways and seasonings.  There are spiral sliced hams ( I usually do not use these unless there is a large crowd.  Afterward the meat tends to dry out. But they are great on a buffet.) there are also half and full hams.  You have a choice of the type and size as well as preparation. 

I like a simple easy method.  I use a half ham unless there is a huge crowd.  I place the ham face down in a roasting pan.  I make several shallow cuts on the ham leaving a diagonal pattern.  I place a Clove on each intersection,  put a lot of brown sugar on top and then I sprinkle with Coca-Cola to moisten the sugar.  I pour about a half of can in the bottom of the pan. cover with foil and roast at 275 for 30 minutes per pound. Simple easy no fuss.  My kind of cooking! The ham will be moist and tender and the spices in the soda add a great flavor.

Try it and let me know how you like it.
