Spiced Peaches

I serve this at room temperature as a side dish for ham. Any leftovers are eaten (cold) with cottage cheese or by themselves. The recipe can be easily doubled. I don't remember the name of the cookbook it came from, but it was replicating dishes from colonial America. (Did canned peaches existed at that time?) :) Don't let the vinegar throw you, the flavors blend smoothly.

    When I came across this recipe I knew I had to make it to go along with my Christmas holiday dinner. I remember when I was little my grandma use to always have spiced peaches with the holiday dinner, but I can't find them in the stores anywhere. We all enjoyed these very much, and they tasted just like I remember. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe. Thanks Satisfied Kris....

    My mother always had spiced peaches on the table for Christmas and Thanksgiving. It has been so difficult finding them in the store in the small town I live in. These were perfect and just as I remembered from my childhood. Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe.

    Very tasty! Thanks for posting, I had previously made this the "easy" way (open can, strain into bowl, add cinnamon and brown sugar and cream), this is much better.
