Peach Butter

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Wash peaches, remove seeds and any bad spots- DO NOT PEEL!
  • Chop peaches.
  • Put peaches in pot with water.
  • Cook peaches over medium, simmer until peaches are soft, about 15- 20 minutes depending up on the ripeness of your fruit.
  • Run the peaches through a food mill till all that is left in the mill are the peach skins which you can discard now.
  • You should have about 2 quarts of peach pulp.
  • Mix pulp with sugar and cinnamon.
  • Cook over medium heat until thick enough to round up on a spoon about 30 minutes to an hour (this may also be done in a slow- 250 degree oven but it takes longer).
  • You will need to stir frequently, making sure that it doesn't stick.
  • Place in hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4" headspace.
  • Adjust lid and rings on jars.
  • Process in a water bath for 10 minutes.
  • Remove to counter and allow to cool.

    I bought two cases of peaches and didn't want that much peach crisp or pies so I decided to look for a recipe for peach butter. It is amazing. I did add a tsp of lemon juice to my pot of pureed peaches along with a cup and a half of sugar and a tablespoon of cinnamon. However I had enough peaches to make 7 pints. So it filled a 6 qt heavy pan. Highly recommend.

    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?
