    Oh my gosh, this was soooooo good. Just so everyone knows, I had an 7 lb. ham, put in in the crockpot with a can of coke on the bottom and finished the top with a can of crushe pineapple. I set it on low before I went to bed and woke up to a yummy aroma. When I tried to pick it up to slice it, the fork literally made the ham fall apart like nothing I had ever seen. I called 3 people because it is amazing and so, so, easy. Thank you Suzanne!!!  -  28 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Excellent! My first ham! I took the advice of several reviewers and marinated the ham overnight in 1/2 liter of Pepsi in a turkey baking bag that was tightly sealed. Sealing the bag air tight is tricky which is why I used so much Pepsi! I did turn the bag several times during the process to get everyting covered. I then drained the Pepsi and covered the ham in liberal amounts of brown sugar, re-tied up the bag, cut in a few slits and baked according to the directions for the turkey bag (it comes with ham directions and a cooking guide per pound of ham). The ham was moist and delicous! You could definitely tell there was a sweetness in the ham and the house smelled terrific during the cooking time. Be sure to let your ham rest in the bag for at least 15 minutes to re-absorb some of those juices. After carving, I saved the juices (skimed the fat) and the ham bone to re-use in the Allrecipes.com "Bean & Ham Soup II" later on. It will keep nicely in the freezer until I'm ready to have ham again. My 12 year old son was thrilled with the result. Ham is his favorite meat and we've been eating my mother-in-laws ham every holiday for 10 years so I was very flattered - this being my first time and all. ALSO - Remove the skin from your ham if you plan on using the brown sugar - very important!!!!! Bon apitite!  -  30 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I have been making this for years. I only make a few changes. I put the ham in the oven bag the night before and add the coca cola (put in the fridge). It gives it a chance to soak. then before placing it in the oven, I rub brown sugar on the ham, seal the bag, poke some holes and bake. If your ham is small enough, this is GREAT in a crock pot too!  -  13 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
