Coca-Cola Ham

With the holidays upon us, this week I cooked up a sweet, Southern-style Coca-Cola Ham. I try to be good these days and stay away from the soft drinks and sweet tea. Ice water suffices for a drink, but not for this recipe. It calls for 24 ounces of Coke for sweetness. This ham is easy to make and well worth the wait.
Ingredients
  Light brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dry mustard 2 Tablespoon
  All spice 1 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1 Tablespoon
  Honey 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Stone ground mustard 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Spiral ham 9 Pound
  Coca cola 24 Ounce (2 cans)
Directions

GETTING READY
1. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, dry mustard, allspice and cayenne pepper.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the honey and stone-ground mustard and mix well.
3. Place the ham in a 9x12 container and coat with the honey and stone ground mustard mixture.
4. After the ham is coated with the wet mixture, cover it with the rub. For extra flavor, consider pushing some of the rub and wet mixture inside the cuts.
5. Let the ham sit overnight in the refrigerator so it soaks up all the flavors.
6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

MAKING
7. Place the marinated ham in a slow cooker or Dutch oven and pour 24 ounces of Coke over the ham.
8. Cook for three hours on high heat.
9. Once the ham has cooked for 3 hours, transfer it on the rack of a large roasting pan to keep the ham off the bottom.
10. Pour the Coca-Cola mixture from the slow cooker into the bottom of the roasting pan and over the ham.
11. Baste the ham with the mixture and cook in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. To keep the ham moist, baste the ham every 10 minutes.
12. Once the ham is nice and crisp, remove it from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes. Baste the ham again.

SERVING
13. Take a serving plate, cut the ham into thin slices and serve warm.
