It’s hard to beat a good honey-glazed ham – at Christmas or any time – and I’m not saying you should even try.
But if you ARE looking for ways to spice up your traditional holiday feast, how about a ham glazed with a hot-sweet-sour combination of sorghum, chipotle and Grand Marnier? Sounds pretty good to me.
Courtesy of the folks at Texas Pete Hot Sauce, this recipe promises to drop a “flavor bomb” …
Chipotle, Brown Sugar & Sorghum Glaze
1 cup chipotle hot sauce
2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup sorghum
2 Tbsp. Grand Marnier
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup thyme, dried

- Combine all ingredients and whisk together thoroughly.
- Use as a marinade, basting sauce, glaze or finishing sauce.
