The Best Ham You Ever Laid Your Lips On

This ham is so good that you will never want to eat a ham cooked any other way. Perfection at least to my family!

1 hunk of ham (can be a 1/2 a ham on the bone or a piece of boneless ham but not a spiral sliced ham)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1 - 2 liter bottle Sprite
1 large can of pineapple juice

Place the ham in a pot large enough to hold it without it sticking up out of the liquid you are going to add. (If you are using a boneless ham please pierce it with a fork several times to allow the flavor to get inside the meat.).
To the pot add the Sprite, pineapple juice, mustard and brown sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
Bring to the boil and reduce heat to a simmer.
Cook at least 2 hours - longer is better.
Tip - You can do this ahead then slice and layer with pineapple rings if desired into a crock pot and cover with reserved cooking liquid and keep warm or even do the day ahead and reheat.
