barq's rootbeer (not diet)
1 can(s)
pineapple slices
1 jar(s)
maraschino cherries
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place ham in sturdy baking pan. Pour root beer over ham. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for three hours. Basting ham occasionally with drippings, about every half hour. If necessary you may want to put a baking sheet under the roasting pan so as not to spill inside of your oven.

After two hours, remove foil. Place brown sugar in a bowl and add drippings from the pan to create a loose paste. You want this to stick to the ham.
3
After a half hour, take ham out in order to place pineapple rings on ham with toothpicks. Then place a cherry inside of each pineapple. Then add more cherries if you want all over cause they are yummy!
4
Bake ham uncovered for another half hour. Remove from pan for slicing, let it rest first.
