- 3-4 lb. boneless, fully-cooked, smoked ham
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ⅓ cup apricot preserves
- 1 TSP chili powder
- ½ cup New Deal Wheat Whiskey
- Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350℉ and allow the ham to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, apricot preserves, and chili powder with a splash of water. Stir to combine and heat until bubbling. Once the mixture is bubbling, add the whiskey and reduce heat to medium-low. Allow to simmer until the glaze is reduced and feels sticky, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Put the ham in a roasting dish and brush all over with half the glaze, reserving the other half for later. Transfer the ham to the oven.
- After 3o minutes, brush the ham with half of the remaining glaze. Continue baking the ham until it registers an internal temperature of 130℉, about 30 more minutes.
- Brush the ham with the last of the glaze, slice, and serve.
