Everything old is new again

Just one of our previous Coca-Cola cooking threads: Braising ham with coke? - includes other things you can make with colas, and other colas/sodas to use.

has anyone else done this? I bet I'm the last lol

Honey, Brown Sugar and Mustard Glazed Ham



Serves 4
Prep Time 5 mins
Cooking Time 1 hr 20 mins
Ingredients
  • Ham joint 625g/1lb 6oz (off the bone)
  • 2 ½ litres Coca Cola (see Cook’s tips)
  • 1 Dsp Honey
  • ¼ Tsp Mustard powder
  • ½ Tsp Dark brown soft sugar
Method
  • Place the ham in a large heavy saucepan (See Cook’s tips)
  • Pour over the Coca Cola until ham is completely covered
  • Bring to the boil
  • Skim off scum as it comes to the boil
  • Cover, but leave a slight gap for steam to escape and simmer for 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Either leave the ham to cool in the Cola or take out and cool on a plate
  • When ham has cooled carefully cut off the skin to expose the fat
  • Use a sharp knife and score diagonally to make a diamond pattern
  • Put ham into a foil container, ( See Cook’s tips) or foil lined baking tin
  • Brush the honey over the scored fat
  • Mix the sugar and mustard together and pat over the honey
  • Cook in a preheated oven 240°C/475°F/Gas mark 9 for 10 minutes
  • Take out and baste, then cook for another 5 minutes until glaze is bubbling
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly, then carve.
Cook's tips
  • Use the normal Coca Cola, not the diet or Zero
  • You can use a saucepan to accommodate the size of ham your cooking, and use more or less Coca Cola, just make sure the ham is covered by the liquid
  • I use the freezer foil containers
  • The amount of glaze ingredients in this recipe are to cover a small joint, just double or triple for a larger one, the flavour will remain the same
Equipment
  • Large heavy saucepan with lid
  • Foil container, or foil lined tin
Shopping List
  • Ham joint 625g/1lb 6oz (off the bone)
  • 2 ½ litres Coca Cola
  • 1 Dsp Honey
  • ¼ Tsp Mustard powder
  • ½ Tsp Dark brown soft sugar
If you want even better flavor... look for Mexican Coke in the world foods section of your supermarket. Its made with cane sugar instead of corn sweetener. It's what Coke tasted like 30 years ago.

i just bought a bottle of Boyland's cola made with pure cane sugar and found it very sweet. i'm not used to the real sugar any more.
