In the mid to late-1980s my husband and I belonged to a dinner party club. 
When I hosted one time I made an entree that was pork tenderloins with 
peaches and (I think) bourbon and each serving was cooked in an individual 
canning jar. My husband talks about that meal to this day.
I wanted to make it again for him (he has been diagnosed with pancreatic 
cancer† and is losing weight due to the effect of chemo on his taste buds 
and appetite.) I am hoping this will appeal to him and†slow†the weight loss!
Unfortunately, I cannot locate the recipe. I collect†Junior League cookbooks 
and was sure it was from a Cleveland†cookbook, but I have gone through all 
the books I would have owned at that time and cannot locate it. Maybe I 
found it in another cookbook or magazine from the library? I have done a 
google search that has turned up nothing.

Can you help?


Hi Stacie,

The pork tenderloin pieces and the peaches (and bourbon) are place in canning jars and then cooked how? In a pressure cooker?



No, pretty sure it was just in a large soup pot. I never owned a pressure cooker, 
so I know they were probably just placed in a pot of water. Donít even think it 
was a canning jar. Appreciate the quick response!


†Hi Stacie,

None of my resources has a recipe like that. I'll post this for reader input.
