Step 1

15 to 20 minutes before your ham is done cooking, place brown sugar, maple syrup, and bourbon in a small saucepan. Bring it to a simmer and let it cook for about 10 minutes.

Bourbon Glaze Recipe Tips:

-– Make sure you allow the glaze to simmer long enough to completely melt the brown sugar; otherwise, your glaze will have a gritty texture. – Use a higher-quality bourbon for a better quality finish on the glaze.
