    Mysterygirl's Note:

    This is the recipe that I've been using for years and years. I love peach butter because the flavor is so light and yummy. I buy the seconds at the orchard because I don't care what they look like - they're going to be smushed anyways and they're cheaper. Save the pretty ones for canned peach halves.

      Good stuff. I barely used 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and glad I was conservative on this. Very cinnamony, tastes kind of like apple butter. After the initial cook, I cooked mine for 45 minutes and that seemed to work well. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting.

      It seems like a simple and yummy recipe, but I ended up cooking it too long (trying to get to the "round up on a spoon" stage) and now it's so thick one needs a knife to cut it. My only other question is roughly how many peaches are in 4 1/2 lbs?
