      I loved this tangy and spicy glaze. It was a hit with the family on Easter. I cut the amount of cloves in half, as recommended by other reviewers.

      Very good and moist. I only used 1/4 teaspoon of cloves because of previous review. Not over-powering and could still taste all of the spices.

      for those who have tried this recipe did you have to add more ginger ale later on?

      My family and I enjoyed this delicious ham for New Year's Eve this holiday season. I prepped it the night before. Feel, as though, the ham absorbed some of the ginger ale, so added enough the next morning to come half way up the ham. I, also, doubled the glaze ingredients. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!!

      My ham turned out very dry and thought there was to much cloves in it. I will not be making this recipe again.

      Slow cooking the ham makes for an easier than easy recipe. Ginger ale is key for a juicy, sweet start, and the ingredients added later lock in great flavor.

      I think you are supposed to cut the ham in half to ensure that it heats through properly. lAs directed in a recipe I received from TOH, I did that with my corned beef this weekend (St. Patrick's Day) and it cooked through perfectly set on Low for 6 hours.
