2 Tbs Clear honey

3. To make the sauce, combine all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and pour over the ham slices. Put the serving dish in the top part of the steamer and return the steamer to moderate heat. Steam the meat and sauce for 5 minutes.

4. Remove the steamer from the heat and carefully remove the dish from the steamer. Serve at once.
