SoCo Peach Freezer Preserves

These preserves tastes like the filling of the most delicious peach cobbler you can imagine. The flavor of Southern Comfort is subtle and not overwhelmingly boozy, but gives it a little something extra beyond basic peach preserves— a great combination of Southern flavors.

I really enjoyed the strawberry freezer jam from a few weeks back, so I wanted to make some more. This time I kept large chunks of fruit, so there were more preserves than jam. Both styles really work depending on your mood.

Seen spread here on freshly baked croissants— a perfect breakfast!
