Friday, May 14, 2010
Those little town blues, I'm taking today! I will be on vacation in Upstate NY for a few days, to see my familia in my hometown...Utica/Rome area. Be back later in the week, so here is a quick post for all of you to let you know, I will catch up with all of your wonderful posts in a few days.... My son Curt will hopefully be doing a Guest post for me sometime while I am gone... and time permits as he babysits our two cats, Alfonzo and Trina..
Thanks for your continued support and wonderful comments......see you on the blogosphere soon~ hope you have a blessed week and ~ as always thanks for visiting and reading :)

One of our favorite dipping sauces is this Sweet Peach Bourbon, I have tried this with many different meals.

Sweet peach glaze over chicken, pork, ham or salmon grilled , baked, fried anyway even used in a slow crocker.. just about every way to cook this sauce is delicious. Use as a dipping sauce on the side, or for basting and just as a marinade...so versatile, you will find several uses after one try. Another delicious dipping sauce for fried chicken bites or chicken tenders..are a favorite. Never waste those fabulous fresh or canned peaches....this will always be the perfect solution!

With Bourbon
3/4 cup of peach preserves
1/3 cup bourbon
1/3 cup fruit vinegar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and cloves each
In a sauce pan over medium heat stir all ingredients together stirring till thickens. Brush on ham, pork or ribs during baking.

Without Bourbon

Dipping Sauce, Marinade or Basting Sauce
1 large can of drained peaches
3 tablespoon of terriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons of flour
2 tablespoons of sugar,
1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves
pepper to taste
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Mash the peaches in a food processor until the peaches are smooth. In a medium saucepan mix together the peaches and the rest of the ingredients over medium heat. Heat to boiling, then continuously stir. When the sauce get thick you can use this to marinate Salmon, Ham or Chicken, Pork. Use as a dipping sauce on the side for fried chicken or even as a basting sauce for your holiday hams.
