    This is the recipe my mom used to use. I could never figure out why the ham, which was cooked in beer didn't taste like it. I guess I never noticed tne ginger ale.

    Desalted Beer Ham Recipe

    1 Ham with bone in
    2 cans of Ginger Ale
    1 can of Beer
    2 TBSP dry mustard
    1/4 cup fancy molasses

    Desalt the ham by pouring Ginger Ale in a plastic bag and putting ham in. Let soak for about 3-4 hours.


    Remove fat and and put ham in a foil lined oven-proof dish.


    Mix beer, mustard and molasses and pour over ham.

    Cover with foil tightly and bake for 15 minutes a pound basting from time to time.

    Uncover and bake another 20 minutes.

    You will get a very tasty moist ham.

    What I have always done when I am cooking a ham, is to pour a can of gingerale over the ham during the last hour of cooking and it takes the saltiness away.
