Peaches and bourbon are most definitely another match made in heaven.  To top that off, the contrast of the warm compote against the cool tangy Greek yogurt makes this dish a true Southern comfort.  If you can’t find Greek yogurt, any vanilla icecream made with an unrefined sweetener wouldn’t be a bad substitute.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup pecans
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 peaches, cored and sliced (about ½ inch thick)
  • 3 tablespoons turbinado or demerara or muscavado sugar
  • ½ cup bourbon
  • 2 cups low-fat Greek Yogurt, lightly whipped

Directions:

  1. Toast pecans over medium heat until fragrant.   Your nose will tell you when they are done.  Set aside.
  2. Heat butter on skillet.  Add peaches.  Let lightly brown in butter over medium low heat for 3 to 4 minutes.  Toss occasionally.   Add raw sugar.  Stir lightly.  Stir in bourbon OFF heat.  Bring to a boil, and then let simmer over medium heat for about 5 to 6 minutes or until flavor of raw alcohol is cooked off.
  3. Pour over Greek yogurt and top with toasted pecans.  Enjoy!
