Homemade bourbon peach butter

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. 1. Preheat oven to 250°.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. :)



  1. Oh my, this looks so yummy! I hope I can find some peaches and try it out. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. I love how everything you cook seems to contain some kind of alcoholic beverage. Cheers! ;-)

  3. Oh my, this seems so delicious! I'm hoping to test it out with whatever peaches I can find. I appreciate you sharing the recipe! While I'm drinking this , I like to play online games. You can find more information at the link.


I love your comments! I read each and every one, and they brighten my day.
