Recipes by Donna: Cocoa-Cola Ham

Okay, I don't even eat ham, but somehow got put in charge of baking the ham a few years ago. It must have been good, because now I'm always in charge of the ham! But I don't mind. Having everyone enjoy it so much makes me happy. This would be good for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or any time.

I buy the Reynold's Oven Bags to bake it in. I sprinkle a tablespoon of flour in the bag. Put in the ham. Then I mix up:

1 can Coke (NOT diet). I did use Dr. Pepper one year. That was good, too.
1/4 c. dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. mustard
1 tsp. onion powder 
Pineapple (fresh or canned)

Stir and pour over the ham.This year, I had fresh pineapple in the fridge, so before I closed the bag, I added a bunch of big pieces to the mix, but you can use a can of drained pineapple rings if you don't have fresh on hand. Add a bit, maybe a couple of tablespoons, of the pineapple juice to the Coke, too, if you want.

Cut a few slits in the top of the bag and bake as directed on the Reynold's box. Slice. Serve with my Warm Pineapple Sauce. I'm told it's 'stupid good.'
