OLD SOUTHERN RECIPE BAKED HAM


 
8-10 lb. smoked shank or butt
1 tsp. cloves, ground
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 (12 oz.) Cocoa Cola
Aluminum foil
 
GLAZE:
4 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. rum (opt.)
Cloves, allspice & nutmeg
 
Place enough aluminum foil in baking pan to completely cover ham. Place ham on foil. Pour Coke over ham. Mix the spices and rub all over ham. Seal the foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes per pound.Remove ham from pan. Discard aluminum foil. Remove all but 1/2" of fat. Score ham by making slits through fat. Mix the same spices as above (cloves, allspice, nutmeg, brown sugar) with the glazing ingredients. Heat this to a liquid. Spoon this over ham as thickly as you can. It will be thicker if made a few minutes ahead and allowed to cool.
Return ham to oven for another 20 to 30 minutes, uncovered, being careful not to burn.
