I have been making this EXACT recipe for over 25 years. My SIL gave me the recipe written on an old envelope and it is really torn, tattered, and stained now. I'm so glad to put this in my cookbook......you know that envelope can't last much longer.!!
Thank you for posting.....I didn't think of doing it myself and I'm so glad you did.
I came along and started using 7-UP or ginger ale.
My Mom was so Worried about me making my First Easter Ham and not having it turn out the way they all like. Surprise My first Easter Dinner at our place turned out to be fantastic! They all raved of how good this recipe tured out. The only change in this recipe I did was use Ginger Ale instead of 7-Up. Thanks for posting this recipe and making my First Easter Dinner a memerable one.
Excellent Recipe! Made Three hams over the holidays and everyone was loving it!
Wonderful ham that brought back very nice holiday memories. My aunt used to put the cloves, pineapple, and cherries on top, my mom used the brown sugar, pineapple juice, and mustard mixture, than I came along and started using 7-UP or ginger ale. Sprite doesnt seem to work as well as it is a lot sweeter flavor. Sweetie thank you so much for posting your recipe! Wish you could have been with us on Easter and enjoye the ham too. Made and reviewed for the 123 tag game.
I baked this succulent and very festive-looking ham for Christmas with the family. Our ham was a nine-pound shank-portion and I increased the bake-time accordingly. There was so much going on in my kitchen that I decided to skip steps #10-11 and simply baste using the cola/sugar pan drippings. The ham still was especially moist and tasty! We all really enjoyed it ~ Thanks!!
