I made this without the bourbon and it still tastes great. I would describe it as more of a thick sauce than a jam, as it calls for 2 more cups of peaches than the pectin box jam recipe.

My 1st time making peach jam. Wanted an unusual one, I got it. Didn't have bourbon so I used caramel apple rum and homemade vanilla. Made 2 batches. Second one may be thicker but no matter, it tastes wonderful! Thanks for makin my 1st time with peaches a great one. Oh, I heaped up my pectin when I measured it as I buy it in bulk and it's easy to add a little more if I think I need it.

The taste of this is VERY good, however, it is NOT jam. If you follow the recipe listed, you will get a chunky syrup. It will NOT gel as jam should. I needed to empty my jars, add another 2 packets of pectin and re-cook this for it to gel into jam.
