Sous Vide Jalapeno Bourbon Glazed Ham
this year for Christmas Eve we decided to give our usual traditional lasagna supper the night off and went with a ham dinner complete with perogies and salad (for balance of course).
i'm not sure about you.... but when i think about cooking a ham i immediately gravitate towards the belief that it should be salty and sweet balanced with a little bit of heat. oh and maybe throw in a cooked out bourbon smoky flavour. just saying.

4-5 lb boneless ham

2 cups orange juice

in a small saucepan place all the glaze ingredients and simmer for 1.5 hours. remove the jalapeño.
