I tend to be more of a traditionalist when it comes to the holidays. That means turkey for Thanksgiving, either ham or turkey for Christmas and definitely ham on Easter. However, after the nightmare of the Ham Burn of Christmas Long Ago, I’m sure you can understand why I tend to be a bit gun shy.
For Easter, I wanted to mix two of my favorite flavors – bourbon and cider – for a glaze that really would kick the ham into high gear. And, an added bonus is with a fully cooked ham, there would be no boiling, no drama and definitely none of those “what is in those” packets to glaze the ham.
