OK ok, I know, i know. I am OBSESSED with bourbon and peach together. It's just like, the best combo EVA!
I'm actually uber into fall recipes now, but this one I made while on vacay a few weeks ago and wanted to share. It is a super delish condensed peach sauce that I found a recipe for in CookingLight magazine. Highly suggest giving this a try with your last peaches of the season.
Here is the recipe that I followed exactly:
- 1 1/2 pounds coarsely chopped peeled peaches (about 5 medium)
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1. Preheat oven to 250°.
- 2. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Combine peach mixture, bourbon, brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor or blender, and process for 1 minute or until smooth.
- Transfer peach mixture to a 13 x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Bake at 250° for 2 hours and 15 minutes or until thickened.
This recipe makes A LOT of sauce, about 2 cups. We ate it over some grilled chicken and it was AH-mazing! Will totally make this again next season. :)
