Whiskey Peach Sauce

Yum
Pinterest. It can really help out when you need it! I had peaches laying on the counter that were in desperate need of a purpose, or they would end up being a treat for the chickens. What to do.. What to do.... Flipped through a couple cookbooks, and found nothing inspiring. From there, I went to pinterest. I searched anything "peach" I had previously pinned. I was thinking some type of cookie/bar destiny for my peaches. Nope. I found the Whiskey Peach Sauce I had pinned, who knows how long ago. That was our peach destiny. Less than an hour later, we were sampling and loving this creation!


You need to go get some peaches, let them ripen, and make this sauce!!  We had to get an extra container of frozen yogurt to have on hand for the weekend, since we will be enjoying this any chance we get. Even if it's just on a spoon while walking past the fridge! I think this would be a great topping for some waffles, and even on some pork chops. But, I can tell you for a fact... It rocks as an ice cream/frozen yogurt topping!



 
Whiskey Peach Sauce  (Source: Serious Eats)
3 cups coarsely chopped ripe peaches (about 3 large) 
1 cup dark brown sugar 
1 cup granulated sugar 
1/3 cup your favorite whiskey  ( I am a Windsor girl)
2 teaspoons lemon zest, grated

Add all ingredients to a large pot. Bring to a boil, over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened
Remove from the heat.  With immersion blender, puree the mixture until smooth.  Store the sauce in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Enjoy!!!
