This ham is spectacular enough as the showcase of an Easter feast, but put these leftovers in a split pea and ham soup, bbq chopped ham sandwich, ham tetrazzini or next morning ham and egg breakfast casserole and you'll want to make Easter dinner a weekly tradition!

Serves 8

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 (8-pound) smoked fully cooked ham half
  • 1 (12-ounce) can cola soft drink
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar plum preserves
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice (can use frozen if necessary)
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
