This is a modified version of a recipe I found in Good Houskeeping Cookbook. I make this every year when the Texas "freestone" peaches come in season. Very delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 lbs peaches
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 12 cup orange juice
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 teaspoon clove


  1. Remove skins and pits from fresh peaches and cut peaches into chunks, then process the peaches in a blender at high speed until smooth.
  2. You may have to repeat this several times so you don't overload the blender.
  3. Transfer peaches and remaining ingredients to a Dutch Oven.
  4. Heat on medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.
  5. Boil for 20 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Ladle mixture into jars, leaving 1/4 inch space at top.
  8. Adjust caps.
  9. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

This does smell wonderful while cooking. I was disappointed in the color of the finished product, though. Mine has a slight greenish tinge. The jars don't look that appetizing. However, it is excellent spread over freshly toasted 7-grain bread. I don't know that I will make it again, but it is a nice change from the usual toast and jelly. And, besides...I finally have used up all of those peaches I had on hand. :)

This smelled SO good cooking! Mine didn't set very hard...seems to be a theme for me with all the peach recipes I've tried. But I have no doubt it will still be good poured over something!
