Peach, Bourbon & Blackstrap Molasses Tart

This recipe is courtesy of Vegan Chef Jess Rice, formerly of Avo. It is completely no-cook. It can be served as a fruit crumble or pressed into a pie shell and cut. We used a local whiskey (Black & Tan) from the artisan distillery, H Clark Distillery in Thompson Station.
