Summer's sweetest fruit is perfect when you simmer it in a heady bourbon syrup and pack it into jars. Spoon these peaches and syrup over vanilla ice cream, sweetened sour cream, waffles, or pancakes. Download the label.

    You can can these poached peaches by processing in a water bath for 25 min after filling and sealing. They keep for at least 1 year ...if you can even wait that long

    This recipe works well with pears as well. I am particularly enamored with the reduced poaching liquid, which has a slight hint of butter and caramel. This recipe is a keeper. Please see my complete review here: http://tinyurl.com/44eo3cq

    I third that request- I think this would make a great Christmas present but want to know how to prolong the shelf life.

    This a fabulous and so easy. Our NC peaches are wonderful this year, so I mixed yellow and whites. The taste with the fresh vanilla beans and bourbon is heavenly...can't wait to surprise friends when I serve this with homemade icecream. Lovely jars with the strip of the bean for gifts also.

    I have a question: is there a way to make this recipe last longer than 3 months after it is canned (the article in the magazine listed a 3-month shelf life if canned)? Or can I use frozen peaches for this recipe? I'd like to make this for Christmas gifts but would have to do so while they are in season.
