    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    I found this recipe on the internet and did a bit of tweaking. The original recipe called for 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. I made one batch with the nutmeg and vanilla and one batch omitting the nutmeg and switching to almond extract instead of vanilla . I prefer it without the nutmeg and using almond over vanilla hence this is how I posted the recipe. The nutmeg version is very good, but I just think personal preference comes into play here. Also, once your peaches are peeled and diced if they have a lot of juice you might want to drain about half of the juice in order to get a firmer "set".

      We made a batch and it was delicious. We decided that we really liked the touch of cinnamon and look forward to having it on our morning toast. The recipe was really quite easy. My peaches were not very ripe when I started and I probably had them in too large of chunks when I started boiling them so I had to pull out the immersion blender to get the fruit to the consistency of my liking.
