Ham glazed with ginger is an amazing dish that will surprise everyone over how well it works. Totally scrumptious. 

Ideal for: Family lunch or dinner on a weekday or weekend party

Serves: 6 people

Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 medium gammon joint or equivalent size for how many you need to serve
  • 350 grams of ginger jam/marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons of mustard
  • 100 grams of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cloves
  • 5 litre of ginger ale/beer


How to make it

  1. Pop your ham in a large pan on the hob and drench in ginger ale
  2. Cover the rest in water and cook for around 3 1/2 hours and bring up to the boil and reduce the heat to keep it simmering
  3. To make the glaze mix the preserve, mustard, sugar and cloves
  4. Once the ham is cooked in the pan (it should be 71/160 degrees) put it into a pre-heated oven (220 degrees) after slicing away the fat and smearing on the glaze
  5. Cook in the oven for 20 mins or until the glaze is hardened
  6. Enjoy

    Ham Glazed with Ginger looks delicious , but 5 litres of ginger beer is an awful lot. Shouldn;t it be .5 litre(half a litre)

      Hi Fiona, it’s for cooking on so ultimately it gets washed away. It depends too on the size of your ham. You could just use half a litre definitely and fill the rest with water, that would work.
