Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
- 3 to 4 pound boneless ham
- 1 medium sweet onion, sliced into thin rings
- 16 ounces Coca-ColaÂ® or other cola
- 1/8 (about) cup cloves
- 1-1/2 Tablespoons molasses
- 2 teaspoons mustard powder
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
Remove from pot and reserve 2 tablespoons of the liquid. Let ham cool slightly, about 15 minutes and preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Line a baking pan with nonstick foil.
Place ham in prepared baking pan. Score the ham in a diamond pattern. Poke holes with a sharp knife in the center of each diamond and insert a clove.
For the glaze, combine 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking liquid, molasses, ground mustard powder, and brown sugar until smooth. Brush evenly over the top of the ham, taking care not to dislodge the cloves.
Bake about 10 minutes until glaze is bubbly and browned. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
