   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  cup           peach preserves
      1/3  cup           bourbon -- preferably
                         sour mash
      1/3  cup           raspberry vinegar
                         OR other fruit vinegar
    1      tablespoon    lemon juice
      3/4  teaspoon      ground nutmeg
      1/2  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      freshly ground pepper
      3/4  teaspoon      hot pepper sauce -- or more to taste
 In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients except hot pepper sauce.
 Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often, until lightly thickened, about
 10 minutes. Stir in the hot pepper sauce to taste.
 The sauce can be made up to a month ahead and refrigerated. Reheat before
 brushing on during the last 10 minutes of grilling.
 Notes: Makes about 1 l/4 cups; enough to sauce 3 pounds of ribs, 2 pounds
 of drumsticks, or 2 pounds of ham steaks. This sweetly spiced sauce is just
 right for a slab of ribs, a heap of drumsticks, or a hunk of ham. Tangy
 vinegar cole slaw and a mess of fried onion rings complete this hearty
 plate. Finish with a few hands of poker and the rest of the blackjack.
