Apricot Peach Honey Whiskey Sauce

I think I am finally recovered from vacation!

 

Goodbye Summer!

 

I know how great I have it living in Colorado but I’m never more reminded than when I vacation to somewhere hot, especially Florida in August!  93 degrees and 90% humidity!

 

Cocoa Beach was a brief escape from the heat for us.  I love this picture of my daughter with her feet in the sand.

 

Colorado is a lovely 86 degrees at noon and 59% humidity (that’s high for here).  It’s a lovely day to make a sauce out of apricots, peaches and honey whiskey!  I used the last of the fresh apricots I picked before going on vacation.

 

I put this sauce on some vanilla ice cream!  The whiskey and cinnamon flavor really came out with the vanilla!  I went back for seconds and thirds!  It tasted great added into yogurt as well!  Some of it I ate right out of the pan!  All very very yummy!

 

 

This is probably one of the last apricot recipes I’ll post for awhile.  Just in case you forgot how much fun I had with my apricot tree this year, feel free to check out the muffins, oat bars, butter and salsa again!

 

Apricot Peach Honey Whiskey Sauce

 

2 Colorado palisade peaches, blanched, peeled and chopped

10 apricots, halved, pitted and chopped

1 c. honey whiskey (I used Wild Turkey)

1/2 t. cinnamon

6 – 4 oz. canning jars and lids

 

 

 

Combine the fruit, whiskey and cinnamon in a medium sauce pan, cover and cook over medium heat for about an hour.  Stir every 10 minutes or so.  It will cook down into a slightly chunky sauce.

 

Let cool slightly while boiling your jars and lids to clean them.  Dry the jars and lids for just a minute on a clean towel and then ladel the hot sauce into the jars.  Seal and place back in boiling water for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Let cool for at least 30 minutes, checking that the jars are sealed by pressing down the button (make sure it stays down).  Store the jars for up to a year in a cool, dry place.  If you don’t want to can the sauce, store in the refrigerator for up to a week and serve on top of your favorite desserts, yogurts or toast!
