Ginger Ale Ham Glaze for Easter Dinner

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this recipe to glaze the 10 pound Hillshire Spiral Ham that I made for our 2014 Easter Dinner.

I simply substituted ginger ale for another liquid ingredient I had used in another recipe.

The glaze was thick and rich and just the right amber color to go over the ham. It is a very simple recipe and the addition of ground cloves and added butter, made this a perfect Ham glaze for our ham. This is a double recipe, so if you want less cut the recipe in half, but we enjoyed having the extra glaze on our ham.

  • 1These are the main ingredients to make the Ham glaze.
  • 2Add the ginger ale, ground mustard cloves, and brown sugar to a medium sauce pan. Stir to blend.
