Bourbon Peach Butter

There is something about Bourbon Peach Butter that sounds really good doesn't it?

Then again butter anything is usually pretty amazing. This was the first time I made my own "butter" and it was everything I expected to be and pretty easy too.

I can taste this dish all over again just looking at this photo. Such a good dinner! Salty, a little fruity and still healthy.

The grilled chicken was seasoned with some salt and pepper and just a little crisp on the outside from the grill marks but soft and moist on the inside.

We had some left over "butter" and I can't wait to try it on some chicken wings instead of breasts next time.

I think if I was a fruit I'd be a peach, sometimes I even look like a peach! This summer I am going to try and use peaches as many ways as I can. I think I am going to work on a savory, peach breakfast next!

Bourbon Peach Butter (recipe from Cooking Light)
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
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


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.
