Cherokee EC
One 10- to 12- pound country ham
1 cup pineapple juice
Apple cider
1 cup ginger ale
Place ham in large, nonmetallic bowl and add sufficient apple cider to cover completely. Cover bowl with a cloth and let ham soak for 24 hours. Drain cider. Place ham in large heavy pot and cover with fresh water. Bring water to a boil, then lower flame, partially cover pot and let simmer for three hours. Lift ham from water. Remove rind and all but about 1 1/2 inches of fat. Place in a roasting pan and pour pineapple juice and ginger ale over surface. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for one and one half hours, basting often with pan juices.
