Here's a different way to prepare a pre-sliced Christmas ham. The ingredients sound unusual but they are a perfect match - sweet and spiky.


Serves: 12 

  • 2kg fully-cooked pre-sliced ham
  • 440g sliced pineapple, drained with juice reserved
  • 1 cup (185g) dark brown sugar
  • 1 litre ginger ale

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Remove as much of the ham from the bone as you can, if necessary. Layer one third of the ham in the bottom of a 6 litre 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Cover with aluminium foil and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Uncover and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
