Wow, this is an Easter ham recipe that is easy and it obviously presses my buttons because one of the main ingredients is: soda.
Regulars here know I can't pass up soda.
This recipe comes to us from one of my favorite Plain-owned businesses, The Home Place in Georgetown, Ohio. The business is run by Delbert and Susan Schlabach and family and it's just such a wonderful place to go visit if you are in search of an authentic, Plain bulk food and bakery experience. Click here to visit their website and sign up for their newsletter, that is where I got this ham recipe (reprinted with their permission)
Anyway, back to the soda....no, this ham isn't totally up my wheelhouse because if it it were then it would call for Coke, but this recipe instead calls for Sierra Mist or one of the other "clear sodas." I'm sure you get a sweet, glazy ham that is just amazing. Check out this Easy Easter Ham recipe!
Easy Easter Ham Recipe From The Home Place
- - Off-the-bone Ham
- - 20 oz. Sierra Mist or similar soda
- - Brown Sugar optional
- Place ham in aluminum foil then place in a roasting pan,
- Pour soda over ham. Pat ham with brown sugar.
- Seal tightly with more foil. Bake at 250* for 5-6 hours.
- For smaller hams reduce baking time. This will give the ham a great flavor and keep it juicy.
Here are a couple of other ham recipes that you might think about for your Easter table:

As a former journalist and now full-time writer, I enjoyed your rant regarding jogging vs. running. Words matter. Semantics matter. You're never going to make everyone happy. Go forth and run. And write.
Thanks, Kelly, although, I should avoid my over-caffeinated rants, I suppose!
