This was my first attempt at baking a ham, almost 40 years old and never baked one before! Ha!! My fiance is a Ham lover and he prompted me to cook him one just recently. I wanted it to be a memorable occasion so I thought why not cook it in some ginger ale :-) Hope you like it, the ham has disappeared, so I know he liked it! :-D

Ingredients

8 1/2 lb
ham
1 c
ginger ale
3/4 c
prepared mustard
1/2 c
honey
1/2 c
light brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
2
I slow cooked an 8 1/2 lb ham in a shallow roasting pan for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I added just a cup of ginger ale to the shallow pan and tented the ham with foil.
3
Prepare glaze: 30 minutes before ham is done cooking, make your glaze in a separate bowl, 3/4 cup of prepared mustard (French's, dijon... whatever your taste), 1/2 cup of honey and a 1/2 cup of light brown sugar.
4
Take ham out of the oven and score the top and smother with glaze. Put back in the oven for at least 10 minutes and add more glaze if desired. Or, what I did was spoon the ginger ale juices back over the glazed ham. Let cook for another 10 minutes and should be ready to serve.
5
As it shows in the picture, I made a side of garlic sour cream mashed potatoes and peas simmered in the ginger ale juice from the ham.
