6 ounces cooked ham with 1 tablespoon sauce equals 394 calories, 22 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 80 mg cholesterol, 1579 mg sodium, 20 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 28 g protein.


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Bake, uncovered, 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine ginger ale, brown sugar, honey and vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook until glaze is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in remaining ingredients; cook 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Set aside 1 cup for sauce.
  3. Baste ham with some of the remaining glaze. Bake 30 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°, basting twice with additional glaze. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved sauce. Yield: 16 servings.

"very good flavor I followed the recipe exactly but I agree with the crockpot version spring16 talks about. leave enough time to do out of the crock pot. I also paired it with chipotle sweet potatoes 2010 annual recipes pg 45 nice Sunday dinner."

"Served this on Easter Sunday . Everyone loved it. They asked me to make it this way every year. The only thing I did differently was cook it in the slow cooker, 7 hours on low and then kept it on warm setting until we were ready to eat. I put 1/2 of the glaze on in the beginning of cook time and the other 1/2 halfway through cook time. I did reserve 1 cup of glaze to serve with ham as recipe suggested."
