Ham with brown sugar-bourbon glaze.

A bourbon-brown sugar glaze gives this ham a robust sweet flavor perfectly suited for a hearty Easter brunch or dinner. Garnish plates with the first asparagus of the season and mashed or scalloped potatoes.

The next day you get to make soup with the hambone and add some leftover ham to give a big pot of split peas some depth. Set some chopped eggs on the bowls to add an attractive color contrast. You’ll also use up some of those Easter eggs.
