This is from the 2004 TOH cookbook. It was submitted by Rebecca Baird. I have not tried it yet but wanted to submit it for safe keeping - waiting on summer and juicy ripe Fredicksburg peaches!

For us this is definitely not the season for great peaches, so I used a similar amount of frozen ones then followed the recipe from there! Definitely made a great tasting peach spread, & we found it great not only over waffles but also slices of toasted whole grain & nutty bread!
