"Basted in coke and wine, and glazed with mustard and brown sugar, my experiment produced a succulent ham so juicy and flavorful that condiments are optional. My whole family raved! Amounts are approximate and may vary depending on your oven, cut of meat and personal tastes."

"I found this recipe last year and have made it 3 times since. It is EASY and everyone raves! (And I learned how to make a quick sweet & spicy honey mustard in the process!)"
"OK, I have to admit it...I found this recipe perfect! I have made it twice and have one in the oven as we speak. There is absolutely no changing necessary, the Marsala gives it a unique and delightful twist. Do not worry that the alcohol taste will come through....it will not be noticeable accept to add a rich smoothness. The brown sugar glaze is just the right proportions. I kept my hams cut side down as they were half shanks but if I had a whole one I would turn as suggested. Thank you, I'm going to move this recipe to my "Family Favorites" cookbook. <3"
"This is the best ham I have ever eaten! I made it with coke and red wine and it was fabulous! I will never make another ham. The mustard brown sugar were a great addition!"
"Oh my ~ I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could ~ it's that delicious. My ham baked in a bout 2 1/2 hours. I used Splenda brown sugar blend in place of regular brown sugar and it worked great. This is one of the best hams I have had in a long time. Thanks for posting a keeper!"
"Great ham! I made it for Christmas dinner and it was a hit with the whole family."
"Excellent choice! I would give this more stars if they went higher! This dish was the hit of my Easter dinner this year. Such delcious flavors everyone went crazy over it! We will be making this our new Easter Ham recipe from now on!"
"I made this on Christmas Eve, and didn't turn ham, or baste every 15 minutes as recipe indicated, and it was still delicious. Great recipe!"
"Thank you for a wonderful Christmas dinner. The baste and glaze were fantastic and everyone enjoyed it. :)"
"This ham turned out tender and delicious. I used port wine since it has a sweet flavor and it blended nicely with the other ingredients."
"I served this for Easter dinner and it was very good. I made it exactly as directed except that I had a 9lb ham so I had to cook it for an extra 20 minutes and I used 1/3 cup of spicy brown mustard instead of the dijon. The glaze came out just right and the meat was tender and soaked up a nice flavor from soaking in the wine and coke combination. We would make this again. Thanks."
"I cooked a ham for my son...being from TN I substituted the wine with Jack Daniels...he took it to the Police Dept where he works and they all loved it. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"Loved this recipe, it was easy and it gave me the most tender and moist ham ever! I think however, I will leave out the mustard next time. I will use the brown sugar, but I'm not sure the mustard helped it. I might even use some blackberry jam with the brown sugar."
"This was the most tender and delicious ham I've ever tasted. It's the only way I'll ever cook a ham again. (I left out the wine)"
"Absoulutly Fabulous! We really enjoyed it!"
