Simple way to sweeten up a salty ham.

Top Review by mom24boys

I didn't have a wild boar ham but my cheapy ham was very salty. I basted with the cream soda throughout the cooking time and it came out lovely. We prefer a ham that tastes like, well, HAM! The overly sweet or smokey ones just don't cut it with us. This recipe added just the right sweetness and flavor.
