Ham:
1 Omaha Steaks Spiral-Sliced Ham (8 pounds)

Glaze:
1 Cup Cherry Fruit Spread
3/4 Cup Dark Spiced Rum
3/4 Cup Cola
2 Teaspoons Of Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Of Dijon Mustard
1/4 Teaspoon Of Kosher Salt

Thaw the frozen ham in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours, then remove the ham from the refrigerator and the ham gets to room temperature for about 30-45 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 325˚F, remove the ham from the foil and the film, return the ham to the foil wrapping and place it in an oven-safe roasting pan. Roll the foil down, leaving 2 inches of foil around the bottom of the ham.

Place the roasting pan with the ham in the oven on the lower rack and heat it uncovered for 60-75 minutes, until it starts to brown. While the ham is cooking, make the glaze.

To make the glaze, in a medium sauce pot, whisk the: fruit spread, rum, cola, Worcestershire Sauce, Dijon Mustard and Salt until they are well incorporated, bring it to a boil then reduce the heat to medium. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes and then remove it from the heat, allowing it to cool down to room temperature.

During the last 15 minutes of cooking, glaze the ham every 5 minutes. Find more holiday recipe inspirations, go to: www.OmahaSteaks.com/blog/recipes.
