Mary Hall’s Easter Ham
Mary sent this hand written recipe to my colleague, Jimmy Bonaminio. Jimmy passed it on to me. Now I’m passing it on to you! I’ll be using horseradish from my herb garden so I know it will be plenty pungent! Nice for Easter brunch or dinner.
3-4 pound boneless ham
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons prepared or freshly grated horseradish root
12 oz. can regular Coke
Make a paste of the brown sugar, mustard, horseradish and 1/4 cup of the Coke. Rub over ham. Place in sprayed crockpot. Pour rest of coke around ham. Cook 6-8 hours on low. Remove, slice and drizzle with juices.
Tip from Rita’s kitchen – measuring horseradish
