Apple & Bourbon Glaze

Apple & Bourbon Glaze

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: About 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 3 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced ginger
  • 1/2 stick cinnamon
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise and seeds scraped
  • 6 cardamom pods
  • 2 teaspoons allspice berries
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons Bourbon


  • To make the glaze, place all of the ingredients for the glaze except for the Bourbon in a 6-quart pot and cook over medium-high heat. Bring the contents of the pot to a boil, stirring often to dissolve the sugar. Once the mixture has come to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and allow the mixture to reduce to a glaze consistency, about 30 to 35 minutes longer.

  • Remove the glaze from the stove and strain through a fine-mesh strainer.  Stir in the Bourbon, a tablespoon at a time to get the desired flavor and consistency.  Reserve until ready to use.
