This is one of my families favorite jam recipes. Is it any wonder? They all love Bourbon?
7 cups sugar
4 cups finely chopped, peeled peaches
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 of a 6 ounce pouch liquid fruit pectin

Combine sugar, peaches, lemon juice and bourbon in kettle. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened (the length of time you'll cook this, will depend upon how juicy your peaches are).
When the unwanted juice is reduced, stir in the liquid pectin. Immediately bring back to a full boil. Boil hard for one minute. Remove from heat, and immediately ladle into prepared jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
Makes 7 half-pints.
