Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 shallots, peeled and sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon
  • 1 quart sweet apple cider
  • 1 cup apple jelly
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 1 ⁄2 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 2 sprigs fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the ginger, shallots, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are soft and brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and carefully add the bourbon. Return the pan to the heat and with a wooden spoon scrape up any of the browned bits that cling to the bottom. Add the cider, jelly, molasses, bay leaf, coriander seeds, peppercorns, and sage. Bring to a boil and reduce until the mixture is syrupy and yields about 1 1⁄2 cups, about 1 hour.

Strain and add lemon juice, salt, and black pepper, to taste.
