Bourbon Glazed Ham

And now for something different…we couldn’t help ourselves with this decadent bourbon-glazed ham roast. The bourbon is combined with orange juice, brown sugar, and green chilies for a nice balance of sweet and spicy. Served with white corn grits, this dish has a southwestern (by way of Kentucky) vibe that will please the entire table.
