Making the Quick Jam
Place peach wedges in a saucepan, and add sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, grated ginger and a sprinkle of salt. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
Boil and stir until the jam sticks to a spoon when lifted, anywhere from 12-28 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in a splash of your favorite bourbon and let cool.
Refrigerate until completely cooled and for up to two months!
Combining Ingredients for the Biscuit Dough
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and then form a well in the middle.
Pour milk and then melted butter into the center of the well.
Stir gently with a wooden spoon or your clean hands, working from the middle outwards.
Don't overmix the dough! Do this until just combined.
Baking the Drop Biscuits
Preheat your oven to 350'F.
Scoop dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets and place into oven.
Bake biscuits until they are a light golden brown, approximately 10 minutes.
