I love bourbon. Like really. On the odd occasion, I head out on the town, it’s my drink of choice, simply on ice. Bourbon chicken thighs with fresh sweet peaches, O…M…G… I need a plastic bib for all this drool!
I have been canning. I sacrificed some sleep to pit and process another 10 lbs of cherries, made another batch of cherry salsa, and got a flat of early peaches. I could just eat them, skin on and all, but there are so many of them. I have successfully canned some, in you guessed it, bourbon. I’ll post the recipe shortly. I feel so crafty, canning is highly satisfying and with new tongs I feel safer, especially because I’m sacrificing sleep to deal with boiling hot water and glass.
Unfortunately, I’m still working way too much so I don’t have any great stories for you. 12 hour work days really wipe a girl out. Lame I know. I’ll work on some better stories for you in the coming weeks. Promise. Maybe a night of bourbon sipping on the town will prompt a story or two. I hope.

Bourbon Chicken Thighs are only a peek into the magic that we can make with peaches!
Tried your bourbon chicken. Had to use pork chops. Had sliced peaches and apples. Not allowed to use dairy. So I used coconut oil instead. Only had a vodca so skipped the booze and fixed a screwdriver. Added lots of garlic. Sea salt and pepper. And a little too much crushed chillies. Cooked it on the BBQ. Absolutely Delicious. love your website. By the way…where can I find fiddleheads??? Thanks holly. Glad I found your site !!!
I’m glad you were able to fit the screwdriver in there. Nice bonus!
I’ve only ever seen fiddleheads at farmers markets and produce stores. They are seasonal, available in Spring (late April through May). This site has some good information about them: http://www.fiddleheadheaven.com/fiddleheads.php
If you’re picking your own, see this link about food safety of fiddleheads: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/eating-nutrition/safety-salubrite/fiddlehead-fougere-eng.php
Can’t find them? Asparagus is the closest thing that I can think of, but let us know if anything else comes to mind.
Do you have any more of that screwdriver to share?
Sounds like a story I might tell! Step one drink the vodka, step 2 lose the screwdriver. Oh wait, the vodka is IN the screwdriver… hahah…Glad you found the site too, elimination diets SUCK, let us know how we can help!!
