These peaches are wonderful..I made them about 10 days ago and sampled some today. When I made them up, the taste of the brandy was quite overwhelming. Today, all the flavours have blended well together and just a hint of something that tastes like a liqueur. I also have a whole bottle of the liquid which I think will be a nice sauce over ice cream or over strawberries. I will try adding the spices next time I prepare these.
