To be honest, I've never made a ham before. This year was not any different. Since even the small hams at the store would have been a little excessive for just two people, the Bear and I settled for these smoked pork chops. They had all the great flavor of ham, but in a smaller portion. The glaze though, the glaze took it over the top. While this might sound like a complicated process, it really was not complicated at all. All you need is a little peach preserves and bourbon. Two ingredients. That's it.
Peach and Bourbon Glaze
1/4 cup peach preserves
1 tablespoon bourbon
In a small dish, whisk the peach preserves and bourbon together. This glaze can be used with poultry, pork, or fish. If you are grilling, simply place your meat of choice on the grill and brush a little of the glaze over the top of the meat. When you are ready to flip and cook the other side, simply brush a little more of the glaze on. A little more once you pull the meat off the grill is great too. You can also use this glaze if you are pan cooking, broiling, or baking your meat. Follow the same process. It is delicious!
