Cola ham


Source: CD Kitchen

I’m not sure why, but a few weeks ago I got a craving for ham. I was finding so many ham recipes for the crockpot that all sounded so good! Rick and I found a great deal, so we bought an 11-pound ham and sliced it up into approximately 2-pound portions. So expect to see a few more ham recipes on my blog in the future!

This ham turned out great. I was a little worried about the long cook time, because the original recipe called for a 4-pound ham and mine was 2 pounds, tops. But as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about!


4-pound precooked ham (I used a 2-pound ham, but kept all other ingredients at the same measurements)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. prepared horseradish
1/4 cup cola 

Combine sugar, mustard and horseradish. Mix thoroughly. Add just enough cola so that, after stirring, it forms a paste. Rub mixture all over the ham.

Place ham in crockpot, and add the rest of the cola.

Cook on low for 6-10 hours. I cooked mine for 8 hours and it was perfect!
