Coca Cola Basted Ham

10 lb Ham
6 c Coca-Cola
1 c Brown Sugar, Dark, Packed
1 tb Dry Mustard
2 tb Sharp Prepared Mustard
2 c Bread Crumbs, Fine, Dry

Ham should be one of the precooked hams. Not one of the specialty cured or canned hams - just the standard bone in ham in the meat counter. Preheat oven to 325 F. Place ham, fat side down, in a shallow baking pan. Pour coke into pan until it is 1/2-inch deep.

Bake 2 to 3 hours, or until ham can be easily pierced with a fork, basting with the Coca-Cola every 15 to 20 minutes. (Center of ham will read 140F on a meat thermometer when properly cooked.)

Remove ham from the pan and cool. Cut away rind and fat with a sharp knife. Combine sugar, mustards, bread crumbs, and enough Coke to form a thick paste. Place ham on roasting rack in pan and pat all over with the paste. Add remaining coke to the bottom of the pan.

Increase the temperature to 375 F and bake the ham 45 minutes longer, basting every 20 to 15 minutes until sugar-mustard paste has melted to a dark glaze. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before slicing.

Serves 12.
