Ingredients

  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8 to 10 pounds)
  • 2-1/4 cups ginger ale
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Bake, uncovered, 1-1/2 hours.
