Sous Vide Bourbon Poached Peach and Almond Salad Recipe

Heating peaches with sous vide softens them up slightly, resulting in a tender snack. Adding some bourbon and cinnamon to the bag infuses them with rich flavor, which some chopped almonds, molasses and fresh mint rounds out.

The amount of time needed to sous vide the peaches will depend greatly on how ripe they already are. I've found 20 to 40 minutes is a good time range for them.
