Easter Ham with Apple & Maple Sauce

4 tablespoons of packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons of minced garlic
6 pound ham
½ cup ginger ale  (cuts the salt from the ham)
½ cup mustard (Dijon)
¼ cup of apple cider
¼ cup of maple syrup (not low cal)
Black pepper
Sliced apples (optional)
Preheat oven 325 degree

Before rubbing the ham, pour the ginger ale over the ham.

In a small bowl mix together garlic, brown sugar.  With your fingers rub ham evenly with this mixture, place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.  Bake for about 1 ½ to 2 ¼ hours to avoid the ham getting too brown cover loose with foil in last 45 minutes of cooking. 

In a small bowl stir together mustard, cider and maple syrup.  If you like you can season with pepper, and serve with apple slices, sauce can be put in a gravy boat for serving.
