A different taste to ham--a bit fruity and still the zing from the ginger make this recipe a nice change from the others. And it is easy to prepare, too.

Even though I had to use a "fake" ham since I was only cooking for 2, I really enjoyed this recipe. The tangy marmalade offset with the ginger and mustard was almost orgasmic. I wanted to eat this with a spoon, but kept it on the ham. I didn't even need the cornstarch. Beautiful recipe. Thnx for posting txzuckerbaeckerin. Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009.
