   Cover with foil, bake for 2 1/2 hours or until fork-tender. Drain, score with a knife,    stud with
whole cloves
   baste with
ginger ale
   brush on glaze, return to oven and bake for 30 - 40 minutes uncovered. Let cool for 15 minutes,
       slice across the grain

   Stir together  
1/2 C prepared mustard
