{Slow Cooker} Bourbon Peaches

Sweet peaches in a light sauce made with a sprinkling of brown sugar, cinnamon, and a splash of bourbon are the perfect way to brighten your holiday dessert table.

Slow-Cooker Bourbon Peaches were inspired by a craving for vanilla ice cream with warm peach sauce. For years now, my sister has been making and sharing her peach rum sauce with me. I finally had a chance to make a batch this year and it’s fantastic, truly. However, traditional peach sauce requires a significant amount of time spent peeling and slicing fresh peaches and on top of the time required, peach season is always gone in a flash.

For these Bourbon Peaches, I've turned our classic peach rum sauce into a crock-pot recipe that requires a fraction of the time and effort. This is pure summertime heaven in a bowl and it’s made even better because you can make and enjoy this all year round without the wait for peach season or the effort of fresh peaches. The flavor is intensely peach and I’ll be honest, I like this every single bit as much (and maybe a little bit more!) than the sauce made with fresh peaches.

  1. Sounds great Mary - canned peaches go very well atop ice cream.

  2. I made these! EXCELLENT!! Loved them on pancakes this holiday season. I added a bit more bourbon and fresh nutmeg. Make sure you cook this the correct length of time - no cheating!!
