In a large bowl, combine all eight ingredients. Blend just until mixed.

Shape into 1-inch balls; place in a single layer on a greased baking pan.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all glaze ingredients, Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved.

Spoon the entire mixture over the ham balls. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.

Uncover and bake 15-20 minutes more or until ham balls begin to brown. Gently toss in glaze in the bottom of pan. Serve warm.

Enjoy, JW
