1 15-pound ham


  • 1 (15 pound) fully cooked bone-in ham

  • 1 (2 liter) bottle cherry cola, divided

  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • ¾ cup strawberry jam

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons apple brandy


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  2. Trim excess fat from ham, leaving 1/4-inch layer of fat. Score fat in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. Place ham on a rack in a large roasting pan and pour cola in pan, reserving about 1/4 cup for the glaze. Season ham with allspice and salt.

  3. Bake in preheated oven, basting every 15 minutes with pan juices, for 1 hour.

  4. Combine strawberry jam, brown sugar, and apple brandy in a saucepan over low heat; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir reserved cherry cola into the glaze; brush onto ham to coat.

  5. Return ham to oven to continue cooking, brushing with the glaze 2 to 3 times more as it cooks, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), 30 to 45 minutes more. Tent ham loosely with aluminum foil and set aside for 30 minutes before carving.

Cook's Note:

Check internal temperature of ham after first removal; if ham has started to brown, glaze once, cover with foil, and glaze only once more. The glaze will induce the browning.
