Bourbon Peach Butter

Does anyone still make a good vanilla ice cream

Does anyone still make a good vanilla ice cream

Some of our best desserts come right before the summer harvest, when we reach into our freezer and clear out the fruit leftover from the year before. No point in having last year’s peaches in the freezer when this year’s are just a few months away. This is a great topping for a pound cake or ice cream.

Bourbon Peach Butter

  • 2 cups frozen or fresh peaches
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp bourbon
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon sugar

Let peaches defrost enough to handle. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add peaches and cinnamon sugar. Stir mixture over medium heat, mashing peaches with a wooden spoon. Add bourbon then bring mixture to a boil and let thicken, about five to 10 minutes. Taste and adjust sugar as needed. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before using as a topping.

    Good vanilla ice cream . . . do you have Blue Bell? One of our favorite brands. Not sure I’ve had their vanilla. And what about B&J’s? They will soon be using NO GMO.

    Greg, you are one of my favourite bloggers ever. Pretty much everything you post makes me want to drool all over the computer screen (that sounds disgusting but it’s true!). This butter sounds incredible. I can imagine using it to make a bread and butter pudding, to be enjoyed with great vanilla ice cream (do you get Maggie Beer ice cream where you are? Its my favourite vanilla. She also makes vanilla with elderflower which is divine). Thanks for the recipe. Darn it though, peach season is months away over here!

  4. Wonderful and in about 2 weeks we’ve got a peach festival in a local village so I’ll be able to stock up!

    Sounds absolutely delicious and not too complicated, even for someone who has never made any kind of fruit butter before. The bourbon makes it pretty special…

    That’s a very clever recipe to use up last years frozen peaches.

  9. Am definitely trying this one! Have you ever done anything like this with cherries???

    Your peach butter would be perfect on a piece of pound cake topped with vanilla ice cream. 🙂

  11. How delicious on ice cream!

  13. I’m sure you already know this but everything about this screams amazing. Must have!

  14. Yummy combinations. I’d like some please. 🙂

    Yeah, I’d say this is a great topping for ice cream! Served warm = major yum factor!

  16. You have reminded me of two things….I must eat what I froze last summer now! And to start planning what is going to fill the void left in my freezer? Peaches, berries, tomatoes?
