Hi Fran! While I can't give you a really good recipe, if they sell Tony Chachere products in your area, they have what I am told is an awesome Pecan Praline Glaze mix for hams. If it sounds like something y'all might like, try looking for it in your grocery store.

Also, have you checked out all the Easter Ham recipes posted by MomsMenu here in the Recipe Exchange?

Here's the link:

I have heard of cooking hams with both Coke & Dr. Pepper (not together! LOL) but have never heard if using sweet pickle juice.

I am going to try it but not for Easter. I will let you all know when I do it. Or maybe I can do one with DP and the other normal.

We always boil our hams, not bake them. That's the Irish way of cooking ham. I get a smoked butt half ham (butts are easier to carve than shanks and have more meat) and put it in a stockpot or roaster oven, cover with water, put the lid on the pot, bring to a boil and then turn it down to simmer. I cook the ham about 2 or 3 hours. For the last half hour I add cabbage wedges.

A guest of ours liked the boiled ham so much that she said she'd never bake a ham again. The ham is much moister this way.

I tried the recipe with the pickle juice and Dr. Pepper, but I used a different ham, one that I could just soak for an hour or two (with draining the water, to get rid of the excess salt)
The ham didn't last around here... SO took some to work, making sure to bring extra, and the guys went Nuts over it!
I only got dinner and one small ham salad sandwich... they all got the rest! (SO and his buddys and my ds #1)

Hi there! I never cook hams anymore, way too expensive! I cook a pork shoulder. I can get a 10-12 lb. pork shoulder for around $6 at our Wal Mart here. All I do is bring it home, put it in the roaster with some water, cook till done and then slice it up. It is delicious. With the water it makes a great gravy to pour over the ham. I have never used any seasoning on it as it really doesn't even need it.

The last time I cooked a ham I bought one, sorry, don't know what kind it was, but I used brown sugar, molasses, pineapple juice and cloves.

Hope this helps.

Hugs,
Kellydid
