Honey glazed ham



This is the second recipe I made using the 11-pound ham we bought awhile ago. Comparing this to the Cola Ham, this had a more traditional taste, in my opinion. However, Rick liked the cola ham better, saying that the texture in this honey glazed ham was a little off. Personally, I really liked both of them! But if I had to pick one, I’d pick this honey glazed ham, simply because it tasted like what ham is “supposed” to taste like.


3-4 pounds fully cooked ham (mine was about 2 pounds, but I kept all the other measurements the same)
1 can Sprite, 7-Up, Sierra Mist, etc.
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Place ham and soda into crockpot. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or 3 to 4 hours on high.

About 30 minutes before serving, combine honey and seasonings and mix with 3 tablespoons liquid from bottom of crockpot. Spread glaze over ham and continue cooking for 30 minutes. Let ham stand for 15 minutes before slicing.

Cola ham

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!
