I have half a bottle of bourbon left over from my New Year's Eve party and wanted suggestions on how to cook with bourbon. Thanks!
I love to add bourbon to caramelized onions and then I flame them, to sauces like BBQ sauce, to pot roasts for a sparkle of flavor, and to pumpkin and sweet potato dishes.
This ham glaze is awesome: http://www.epicurious.com...
And ditto on the pumpkin/sweet potato dishes!
Bourbon glazed ham is yummy, as are bourbon baked beans.
I used bourbon to deglaze the searing of a pot roast in olive oil and mustard seed because we had no red wine on hand. To that, I added a liter of beef stock (More than Gourmet), some peppercorns and brought it to a boil. Then chuck in chopped 2 diced potatoes, a can of pureed tomatoes and half a diced onion. After an hour simmering, I added carrots, parsnips, and celery and cooked until tender. The bourbon added an almost bacony flavor to the dish.
This sounds interesting.. Sugary cherries preserved with bourbon.. http://chowhound.chow.com...
Well, if it's really yummy bourbon, you should pour it, room temp, into a heavy-bottomed old fashioned glass or snifter, and sip whilst you cook yourself any of the great things mentioned here. Replenish as needed.
It's also good in whipped cream, alongside a slice o pie.
Serve neat along side chocolate caramel candies.

Thank you everyone for all the great ideas I just might have to buy another bottle or two to try out all these recipes.
I've made this a couple of times and it's wonderful:
