1/2 c
1/2 c
apple juice
1 1/2 c
brown sugar
1/4 c
1/8 tsp
cayenne pepper


1In a saucepan combine the bourbon and apple juice and bring to a boil. Cook over medium to medium high heat until reduced to about ½ cup.
2Remove from heat and add brown sugar, honey, and cayenne pepper. Stir to form a paste.
3Remove the ham from the oven about 30 minutes before it is finished cooking.
4Score the ham, if it is not already scored. You just want to slice through the very outer layer of the ham to help the glaze soak in.
5Rub paste all over the top and sides of the ham.
6Bake 20-30 minutes more or until the glaze is glossy and darkened.
7Let ham sit a few minutes before slicing.
