I got this recipe from the cooking section of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel years ago. It is the ONLY way I will make ham. Everyone who tries it raves about it, although it does look like a volcano erupted! :):) A little expensive in the ingredients, but worth making once a year! NOTE: The 1-1/2 hours prep time includes the 1-1/4 hours of boiling ham on stove..

  1. Place ham in tall kettle and cover with ginger ale. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1-1/4 hours. Remove ham from liquid and cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl to make a paste.
  4. Brush some of the mix over the ham and bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  5. Continue baking 2 to 2 1/2 hours longer, until ham is heated through, brushing with mix as needed. Serve warm.
