Sugar Free Maple Bourbon Glaze

I originally created this Sugar Free Maple-Bourbon Glaze for Easter Ham. The bourbon in the glaze balances the flavors of the peppery brown mustard and the sweet sugar substitutes, making it delightful on a salmon filet, a meaty chicken thigh or barbecued into smoked turkey legs. Glaze Your Meats One benefit of using a sugar substitute is that they don’t burn. You can apply your sugar-free glaze liberally throughout the cooking process without the fear of it burning. I have a number of other ideas for this glaze, including smothered chicken thighs in the Instant Pot. I’ll update this post …
