    I make this Bourbon Glaze that's pretty darn good

    By itself, it's not that great


    Use it on chicken, pork chops or salmon

    Use it as a dipping sauce for fruit

    Pour it on top your ice cream for an "Adult Sundae"





    3/4 cup bourbon or whiskey

    1 cup brown sugar

    1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

    2-3 tbsp lemon juice

    1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

    1 tbsp honey

    2 tsp coarse sea salt

    ¼ tsp ground pepper

    1 tsp garlic

    1/2 tsp ground mustard

    Makes about 1 cup of glaze

    Combine the bourbon, sugar, salt, garlic, pepper, mustard, honey, vinegar, lemon juice and Worcestershire in a small saucepan and whisk. Heat over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Reduce to low heat and let simmer for 20 minutes, or until mixture reduces by about half. Pour thru fine strainer into a bowl, to remove any solids.  The glaze will thicken a bit as it cools to room temperature.

    Brush the bourbon glaze on fish or chicken.  Add as much or as little as you would like.  Feel free to use it as a dipping sauce too. It can be stored in the fridge for a week or two – just allow it to come to room temperature (or slightly warm it) before using.

    Happy smoken.
