I made this for Easter with a 1.5 lb. ham (adjusting the recipe) and it was the hit of the night! I was told by my friend who doesn't like ham that this was the best ham he'd ever had in his life and the 1st time he ever went for seconds.

  3. Place pineapple rings and cherries on ham, fastening with wooden picks and pierce with cloves.
  4. Put ham in a baking pan and pour ginger ale over it.
  5. Bake in oven for 1 1/2 hours. Baste every 1/2 hour with the juice from the pan. Remove ham from the oven.
