This makes a very moist glazed ham without all the sugars that most glazed have in them.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love the ginger ale glaze on this baked ham. It's slightly sweet but tangy at the same time. There is a hint of spice from the red pepper. Now, this ham takes a little babysitting because of basting but the end result is amazing. As you bake the ham, the glaze thickens up. Glazing the ham with honey at the end is a tasty final touch. It mixes with the glaze and adds great flavor. Juicy, this is a delicious holiday ham.
