    Serves: 12 

    • 1 (1.8kg) fully-cooked ham, sliced
    • 1 (567g) tin sliced pineapple, drained with juice reserved
    • 220g dark dark brown soft sugar
    • 1 litre ginger ale

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Remove as much of the ham from the bone as you can. Layer one third of the ham in the bottom of a 6 litre casserole dish. Top with a few pineapple rings and 1/4 of the dark brown soft sugar. Repeat the layers, ending with pineapple rings on top, but don't sprinkle the last 1/4 of dark brown soft sugar.
    3. Pour any juice left in the pineapple can over the ham. Then pour in enough of the ginger ale to fill the dish about half way. Sprinkle the remaining dark brown soft sugar over the top.
    4. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Uncover and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

    This was good and easy. BUT, next time, I will make a syrup of the brown sugar/pineapple juice/ginger ale before pouring it over. It was sweet, but it would have been better if it was more of a glaze.  -  04 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've been making ham like this for years. As another poster suggested - Vernors Ginger Ale is best but I think it's a Michigan-based pop. Didn't have it in IL. But if you can find it - it's awesome. Great for reheating leftover ham.....gently simmer in the Vernors - easy ham and great tasting.  -  20 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good and very easy to prepare. Perfect for holiday dinners. Made it for Easter and I'll be making it again for Christmas!  -  20 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
