Preserves for peach bourbon sauce

For the bourbon I used Knob Creek, which I find to be a fantastic choice whether using in a recipe or just drinking while the smoker or grill is going. Your peach preserves are also going to have some chucks of peaches in them, keep them there. They add some amazing flavor and additional texture to the BBQ sauce, that you will not normally get in your store bought BBQ sauce. Once you have these gathered we can dive into how to make this Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce recipe.

Making The Best Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce

In addition to the ingredients you will need a small pot. After measuring out the ingredients, add them to the pot. We then want to let them simmer over a low heat for about 20 minutes. You will want to stir on occasion to keep the flavors blending and sticking to the pot. If you are shorter on time and are doing this over medium heat, probably 15 minutes stirring more frequently.

After 20 minutes simmering over a low heat you are going to be done. Its a super easy recipe to make and one that everyone will enjoy!

How To Serve A Peach Bourbon BBQ Sauce

There are a variety of ways to use this BBQ sauce. We specifically made it to compliment our Peach Bourbon Pulled Pork recipe. But this work great on a variety of dishes and sandwiches. You can also use this as a dipping sauce for wings, or on ribs.

If you wanted to add a little kick of heat to the recipe, add a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the recipe.

If you are making this in advance or just so happen to have some leftovers, you can store this in the regfrigator in a air tight container. My preference is mason jars but use whatever you have in the house. Stored properly this will be last about a week.
