This is a simple and delicious way of adding a kick to a popular meat dish.
I got the inspiration for this from my mother; at Christmas she boils ham in ginger beer. Wanting to avoid the sugar and calories gained through this, I looked for an alternative. The great thing about this set of substitutions is the meat still comes with a kick, but you don't feel you will rot your teeth with it!
2 litres water
3 tbsp ginger paste
1 tbsp golden caster sugar
Boil water and dissolve ginger paste and sugar into it.
Boil ham for 30mins per 500g.
Serve as required.
