Flavoured butters captured my attention during ZWT & I now even have a cookbook devoted to them. I struck gold at recipegoldmine.com, found 4 new varieties I could not find here at RZ & decided to enter them. This is the last, so I hope you will enjoy it & all the others b4 it!
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 1 (16 ounce) can unsweetened peaches (drained of all liquid)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Drain peaches of all liquid & place in a lrg bowl.
- Add butter, cinnamon, nutmeg & honey.
- Mash to chunky applesauce consistency & chill for 2 hrs b4 serving. (I personally favor a smoother blend of this mix using my immersion blender vs a coarse mash).
- NOTE: Use w/English muffins, biscuits, scones, bagels, French toast, pancakes, waffles or whatever your imagination envisions.
Yum! I decided to go with the extra smooth version and used my immersion blender and used fresh peaches I wonder if the reason the peaches and butter don't get completely smooth is the actual temperature of the peaches added to the butter. If the peaches are colder than the butter (that's what happened to me), the butter kind of seizes up when you add the peaches. Regardless, I put the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds maybe and if smoothed right out. I split the recipe into multiple tiny canning jars and MIGHT give as gifts if I don't eat it all first! I think next time I'll actually leave it more chunky and see if I like the small pieces of peaches! Thanks Twissis!
For me this was just ok. I had hoped for more peach flavor and even added extra in hopes of getting more, and I also added a tiny bit of ground ginger trying to perk it up. I too had to melt the butter a little so everything would incorporate and I mixed it in my mini chopper. I would like to try this again with fresh peaches.

I thought it was a trifle bland, so I doubled the spices and liked it better. I also had to microwave it a little to get the butter to incorporate. I know it will be good on toast, so I tried it on grilled corn on the cob. Yup, it was good!
