1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dry sherry
1. In a small saucepan, combine ginger with one cup of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until water is reduced by half and infused with ginger (about ten minutes). Strain and discard ginger, then mix the ginger-water with honey and stir until dissolved.

3. Add soy sauce, ginger-honey water, brown sugar, and sherry. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is reduced to a syrupy thickness so that it will coat the ham (about five minutes.
