Sierra Mist Ham
Sometimes the easiest recipes turn out the most delicious. I found this smoked ham for only 99 cents a pound. Since this was the cheapest ham at Safeway, I was nervous about how moist it would turn out. Sierra Mist to the rescue! I adapted a 7-Up recipe that I had on hand. Luckily ham turned out wonderfully!
1 - 8-10 lb ham
1 - liter of Sierra Mist
1/2 box of brown sugar
1 can of sliced pineapples (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place ham in roasting pan. Pat brown sugar all over ham. Use toothpicks to place pineapple on top. Pour Sierra Mist into roasting pan. Place in oven. Cook for 20 minutes per pound. Baste every 1/2 hour or so.
Remove and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Slice and enjoy. Don't forget to save the ham bone for soup or beans!
