I'm still in vacation mode but I wanted to share this recipe before peach season was over! I had plans to do canned whole peaches for the first time but alas I think I've missed my window of opportunity! I did however get to try out this recipe for Peach Butter from One Sweet Mess that I found on Pinterest. I'm trying to put my money where my pins are so I've been making my way through some of the ones that I had on my "summer" board - this one in particular caught my eye because peaches and also butter ;)
I decided to do these in the middle of the heat wave earlier this month - heat wave while wearing a baby makes for a sweaty mess of a kitchen. It was fun though and super easy (if a bit cumbersome because the canning process is always a bit of a to do what with the boiling of the jars and the sterilizing.) Essentially all it involves is cooking the peaches down on the stove with a large amount of sugar and then blending the liquid to make it smooth. My only comment would be the volume I got out of what was originally a large batch of peaches - I guess I should have divided the batch up into smaller jars.
I'm so excited to try this in the winter when a little bit of summer in a jar will go a long way!
Next stop; SALSA!!
Happy weekend!! Get out and enjoy this last bit of August while we can!
