Let me introduce you to the amazing flavor that is peach butter. Usually I have an idea of all my posts for the month a couple of weeks in advance. What can I say, I am a total organisational nerd – note: that doesn’t mean I am organised at all, it just means I like writing lots of lists…and then forgetting all about them 🙂 Whether I follow those lists or not, well that varies!
So, this month, I had all my posts organised in a lovely little list, and this one was not on there. This one happened as a side note whilst making some canned peaches. It is so good though, I couldn’t wait to share it with you, and it has been pushed to the front of the line (I am a total rebel, I know).
This is a fantastic way to use up some peaches that are about to go off, or those that aren’t pretty enough to be canned or presented in some fancy cake. I made this batch yesterday, and already I have eaten an entire jar of it, and hubby has been eating the second jar by the spoonful. So I am making more today 🙂
This will last 2-3 weeks in the fridge (but it won’t, because you will eat it all). I have been having it on some fresh bread with yoghurt, adding it to our morning oats, and using it as a topping for pancakes and ice cream too.
If you have never peeled a peach before, then be sure to check out my tutorial here, it will make your life so much easier!
- 6 peaches peeled (tips for easy peeling are here)
- 3 tbsp raw honey switch for maple syrup for vegan
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
After peeling the peaches and removing the seed, roughly chop the peaches into small chunks
Throw the chopped peaches into a saucepan with the honey and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer over medium heat
Once simmering, reduce the heat to low and allow to cook for about 70 mins until thick (see note)
Remove from the heat and store in a sealed glass jar in the fridge for 2-3 weeks
