    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    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..

      Everyone loved this ham, even my kids (two teens and a pre teen)! It sounds like it would take awhile to prep, but it doesn't. The longest part, besides selecting what ham I was going to use, was it cooking.<br/><br/>I bought one of those sections of hams that was precooked. No bone, not sliced. I did make several 1/4 inches slices through the outer layer on the top and scored the bottom in a diamond pattern so the juices could penetrate into the ham. And it made it much easier to slice when it was done.<br/><br/>I used honey, not molasses, for this recipe and basted the entire ham. I slathered on more of the paste three times during the cooking cycle, and didn't use it all. It was cooked perfectly within the times noted and was juicy, flavorful and I have enough for leftovers tomorrow. <br/><br/>The ingredients to me were not expensive. The only waste I see are the cherries as we don't really like them, but I'll find a use for them. I even let the kids drink 1/3 of the Ginger Ale! However, it is a bit difficult to tell if the Ginger Ale is boiling or if it's the carbonation.

      Tagged this awhile ago and finally got to it. Why did I wait so long? The family loved it! I followed Me & Mr. Jones (aka Missus Jones) advice and boiled it the night before. I then put it in the oven and covered it after 45 minutes and went to church - it was great to come home to - the house smelled wonderful! Served scalloped potates and green beans - perfect Sunday dinner. Would make a great brunch dish too. Thanks WI Cheesehead!!

      Wow! I made this for Easter and it was beyond well received. I chose to boil it in the Ginger Ale the night before. The whole family loved it! I knew this was a good recipe when I saw it came from a WI Cheesehead! (Family's from WI!) Thanks for posting!
