Peaches and Bourbon
- Came across 2 recipes that are reminiscent of 'Southern Comfort'.
11/2 cups fresh peaches; peeled & sliced (another site suggests 750 g)
2 cinnamon sticks
11/2 cups sugar
4 strips lemon peel
3 whole cloves
2 cups bourbon
Crush peaches slightly. Place peaches and sugar in a saucepan and
heat over low heat till sugar dissolves. Pour into a jar. Add spices
and bourbon. Steep for 7 days. Strain and age for 1 month, then
strain again and bottle.
2 lb (900 g) fresh peaches; stemmed and washed
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 tsp lemon zest

Make a sugar syrup. Cut peaches in half, remove stones and slice thin.
Place peaches, stones and citrus zest in a clean 2 quart (2 l) jar.
Pour syrup and bourbon over peaches. Steep for 2 weeks. Strain. Let
stand for 2-3 weeks. Decant or filter into bottles.
