While many enjoy the first crisp mornings and leaves underfoot, the fall also means it’s time for Barbour jackets and apple cider. Pair any of that with your favorite bourbon and it’s going to be a great day. Package all that into a glaze for your favorite meat, fish or poultry and the aroma is divine.
