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.

A very tasty peach jam with a mysterious flavour, the vanilla and Cognac I added really turned a simple peach jam into something special!! I can't wait to try this on ice cream!!

This is good stuff! Much more interesting than plain peach jam. It was delicious over vanilla icecream and followed by chocolate syrup. Yum!

This is an excellent jam and an easy recipe to follow. I didn't have bourbon so I just used some whiskey that I had on hand. As another reviewer stated the whiskey really helps round out the vanilla flavor. It set up beautifully. Will make again for sure.

Great recipe! I didn't have bourbon on hand and subbed blended Scotch whiskey. It turned out wonderful, really rounds out the vanilla flavor and adds a sweetness that doesn't over take the peach taste.

This is awesome. My hubby took to work, everyone there loved it so much that they bought all of my jars of this jam and already want more. I bought a bushel of peaches this weekend and I am set to make more today. Thanks for sharing!

This jam is so delicious! We used it as an icecream topping and it was to die for. Mine did not set up as firmly as I would have liked for jam but I think that was on my end. I might blend up some of the peaches next time as well. It is definately worth trying!
