Instructions Checklist

  • Remove as much of the ham from the bone as you can. Layer one third of the ham in the bottom of a 6 quart casserole dish. Top with a few pineapple rings and 1/4 of the brown sugar. Repeat the layers, ending with pineapple rings on top, but don't sprinkle the last 1/4 of brown sugar.

  • 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 brown sugar over the top.

  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Uncover and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

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. Read More

This recipe seemed easy enough. I followed it exactly but the ham curled up and was EXTREMELY DRY. I retried the recipe but did not remove the foil for the last 20 minutes as the recipe instructed. What a difference! The second try was a hit with my family. They suggested I thank you after the second try so thanks BCORTE for sharing! Read More

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. Read More

My Father had made this every Easter for years. Also excellent is using a bone-in Ham and basting every 20 minutes until finished. We live in the Philadelphia area and our favorites were Franks Golden ginger ale. 2 generations love this recepie. Read More

I make ham in a similar way and this is very yummy- I let the ham bake a little longer and mix the ginger ale/pineapple juice basting juices and drippings with a can of cream of mushroom soup for a wonderful gravy. Read More

I made this for Christmas and it was very good. I combined the brown sugar pineapple juice and ginger ale before pouring over the ham and basted every 30 minutes. I also used a butt portion ham and Bleinheim's Ginger Ale. Will be using this again at Easter. I wonder how it would work on the grill and use the juice mixture as a basting sauce? Read More

This is really good. A suggestion--If you can get Vernor's Ginger Ale use that. Oh my! what a flavor. A glaze of the ingredients that another reviewer wrote would be perfect. Read More
