Bourbon Peach & Thyme Jam


3 large fresh peaches, peeled

3 T. granulated sugar

Juice from 1/2 lemon

2 T. bourbon

1/2 tsp. minced fresh thyme, lightly packed


Using a sharp knife, cut peaches into 1/2-inch segments. In a large saucepan, place peaches, sugar, lemon juice, bourbon, and thyme. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and reduce the heat to bring the jam to a simmer. Continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until jam thickens to desired consistency (about 20-30 minutes). If the peaches are too large for your tastes, mash them a bit with a fork to smooth out the jam. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Serve on bread, scones, biscuits, or as an ice cream topping.
