This is a great appetizer for holiday buffets. So simple to make.

Made this using Reeds Ginger Brew, which is a very sweet, gingery ginger ale, and it turned out great! To those whose ginger ale did not reduce - a higher sugar content probably helps, and then you just have to boil off almost all of the water and carmelize the sugar, no matter how long that takes. (made this a second time with a different ginger ale, and the results were not as good, even though I simmered the liquid until it was almost gone). Using a higher temperature worked for me, as I kept an eye on the pan and stirred frequently. The kielbasa was glazed in thick ginger goodness! One thing I may try next time is reducing the ginger ale a little before adding the sausage slices, so they won't get overcooked. This is a great alternative to the ubiquitous bbq "party weenies" that always get brought to parties around here. Thanks!
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut kielbasa into 2-inch slices. Place in a large skillet with the ginger ale (regular, this does not work with diet ginger ale).
- Bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium. Do not cover pan.
- After 15 to 20 minutes, ginger ale will be reduced and start to caramelize.
- WATCH CAREFULLY because you don’t want it to burn.
- At this point, keep stirring until chunks are glazed.
- Serve on a platter with toothpicks inserted. They are sticky and yummy!
