I scored my ten pound ham--my free ham, I must proudly add, poured Sprite and orange juice over it, and pressed brown sugar onto the surface. Then I put it in the oven for 2 1/2 hours and ignored it. Took it out to slice it. And yum. "Yum," that's exactly what Dominic said about it. Everyone else that we had over seems to have liked it too. You could have been there, counted among my guests, eating sweet juicy ham, cheesy scalloped potatoes, broccoslaw salad (I can't take any credit for making that), and scrumptous dessert... Yes, this is raw bribery, if you come visit us, I'll make you food that makes you say, "yum."
Now that I've discovered a new use for Sprite (or ginger ale, as the recipe originally called for), I'm thinking about trying other sodas in cooking. I've heard that Coca-Cola makes a great meat tenderizer in a marinade. Maybe I'll try that for my next cooking adventure. Maybe when you come.
