The cherry and citrus-flavored glaze that coats our Cherry-Citrus Glazed Ham makes for a company-fancy meal that they'll go hog-wild over! And the tasty leftovers will extend the enjoyment!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (5- to 6-pound) fully cooked semi-boneless cured ham
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 (12-ounce) can cola
  • 3/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Using a sharp knife, score top of ham in a crisscross pattern. Place ham in a large roasting pan and sprinkle with allspice. Pour cola into pan and bake uncovered 45 minutes, basting occasionally with pan juices.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes, or until cherry preserves are melted.
  3. Remove ham from oven and brush top and sides with glaze. Return ham to oven and cook an additional 45 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of  ham registers 140 degrees F; brushing with glaze every 15 minutes. Remove ham from oven and let rest 15 to 30 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or cold.



Ham is so versatile, it teams with many of our favorite go-alongs! How about serving it up with our best Au Gratin Potatoes and a heaping bowl of our Candied Bacon Spinach.

This sounds so good. I hope there will be ham on the table this Christmas.

We use a fruit cocktail (cherry fruit cup) instead!

OHH It's So Good

Yummy!! I think the cherries along with the orange juice sound delish!

looks delish! will have to try

This is a must try recipe!

This is a very interesting ham recipe. I will have to give this recipe a try.

We love ham and this sounds delicious. I'll have to try it.

Yes we love ham and this recipe looks yummy. We are going to try it when we have Christmas at our house this year.

FB had been hiding these posts and i just figured out how to get htem back in time for this YUMMY sounding recipe!

I am going to try this on our ham this Christmas looks delicious )

This sounds wonderful, will be trying it this year on our Christmas Eve ham.

i have never made it with cola , but since im making ham for christmas dinner i will have to try this , sounds very good

This sounds "Oh so good". Will definitely be trying this with my Christmas ham.

This sounds absolutely delicious! Will definitely try it for my next ham.

I make my ham with cherry 7-Up and juice from marachino cherries. I think the allspice sounds good - I would add to brown sugar and after soaking the ham in the 7-Up and cherry juice-I would cover the ham in the brown sugar and allspice mixture and bake it covered and then open for about 30 minutes with 10 minutes without cover. It will be a nice stickey exterior and thr 7-Up and cherry juice is exceptional on a ham.

Made this ham for Easter. The best ham we ever ate. Everyone raved about it. The glaze is amazing.

I have this in the oven right now. My hubby drank the last cola, so I used Orange soda instead. I put pure orange extract in the glaze with a capful of Southern Comfort and left out the orange liqueur. It smells heavenly. I tasted the glaze and it was good. Can hardly wait to serve.

FYI: Hays has their ham on sale this week for .97 per lb.

I watch mister food every day, it is a very good part of chanel 9 news
