Baked Ham With Honey and Fruit Nectar
aluminum foil or large baking bag 
roasting pan 
meat thermometer 
1/2   spiralcut smoked ham (about 7 lbs. fully cooked)
  juices packaged with ham
1/2 to 1 can  coca cola (optional)
1/2 cup  pear nectar (or other fruit nectar of choice - pineapple juice is
3/4 cup  fresh orange juice
1/2 cup  frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 tsp  ground cinnamon (optional)
3/4 cup  firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup  honey (get local honey, if you can get some that is
  orange marmalade, pear preserves, crushed pineapple or fruit of choice
preheat oven to 375* f. spread out on your table an adequate amount of 
foil to wrap the ham. alternatively, you can use a large size reynolds 
baking bag. place ham on the foil or in bag, cut end down, in a roasting 
pan. mix juices together in a bowl. pour over ham. if desired, you can 
pour a can of coca cola over it also. cinnamon may be sprinkled on top if 
desired (optional). bake ham in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes per 
pound. carefully open top of foil or end of bag (the steam will be very 
hot) and baste the ham several times with juice and pan drippings. after 
about 1 hour, turn the ham so the sliced end is either upright or the ham 
is on its side (best 
i think for this step). use either method, #1 or #2. 
#1- sprinkle the dark brown sugar over the ham. press it down firmly with 
a spatula. drizzle honey over the sugar. 
#2- mix dark brown sugar and honey together in a small bowl. drizzle or 
brush mixture on the ham. 
leaving foil open on top -- or if in a bag, you might want to leave it 
open and pull it back -- bake ham for another 45 minutes, or until 
internal temperature measures 140 degrees f. on a meat thermometer. [you 
might want to spread orange marmalade or pear preserves or other fruit jam 
on top]. baste ham thoroughly and allow to cool. reserve drippings. wrap 
ham tightly with foil. serve as desired, either warm or chilled. before 
serving, heat drippings and pour over ham and in gaps of slices. 
a good side dish would be sliced pineapple with maraschino cherries in the 
centers, baked and basted until golden brown. we also like macaroni salad, 
deviled eggs, stuffed celery and either fresh vegetables (peas, butter 
beans, okra and or corn on the cob) or pimento cheese sandwiches (on rye), 
plenty of iced tea and watermelon or blackberry or cherry pie.
