I saw this made on the Food TV Network the other day and it looks so good! I will definitely make it the next time I buy a ham and it would be great for any holiday or dinner party. Serve with your favorite potato, veggie dish and biscuits.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ham, bone in (usually about 6 to 7 lbs)
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar orange marmalade
  • 1 (12 ounce) can Coca-Cola, classic


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Pour orange marmalade into a bowl and add about 1/2 can of the coke.
  3. Let it set while you prepare the ham.
  4. Remove visible fat from ham and make crisscross cuts in the ham.
  5. Place in a 9x13 baking pan and pour the marmalade/coke mixture over the ham.
  6. Place in oven uncovered and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. This allows the marmalade to set or crisp on the ham.
  8. After 20 minutes, cover the ham with foil and bake an additional 30 to 45 minutes.
  9. Baste with pan drippings every 15 minutes.
  10. If there are not enough pan drippings, mix up more marmalade mixture to baste the ham.
  11. Uncover the ham the last 20 to 30 minutes and baste every 7 or 8 minutes.
  12. Allow the marmalade mixture to brown until dark brown in color.
  13. Remove from oven and place ham onto a platter to cool before cutting.
  14. Total cook time is about 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 35 minutes.

This is very tasty, but more orange-y than I expected. I gave it four stars because it the orange was too intence for me.

So good and extremely easy! Have had this recipe in my cookbook for a long time and am glad I finally gave it a try. I've made Coca-cola hams before, the coke tenderizes the meat, but the addition of orange marmalade gives it a wonderful flavor. Note that the recipe calls for only half a can of coke. My ham was larger, a Cook's 9.25 pound shank, so after 20 minutes at 375, I covered and reduced the heat to 325 for an additional 2 hours 40 minutes (directions said bake at 325 for 20 minutes/pound). Made a lovely Sunday dinner that even the kids enjoyed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
