Peach Butter - A Family Feast

Peach Butter

  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 pints

Ingredients

  • 2024 peaches (depending on the size) – enough to give you 8 cups of peach puree
  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon allspice

Instructions

  1. Peel and pit the peaches, then puree in a food processor. You’ll want a total of 8 cups (2 quarts) of peach puree.
  2. Pour puree into a large, heavy bottomed pot and add sugar. Over medium heat, bring peach mixture to a boil, stirring frequently to prevent sticking and scorching. Boil until the mixture is thickened and reduced by about one third (again, stirring to prevent sticking and scorching) – for us this took about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Remove the thickened puree from the heat and stir in the spices, mixing evenly.
  4. If canning, pour into clean, sterilized canning jars and process for 10 minutes using the water bath canning method.
  5. Any un-canned peach butter should be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to a week.
