Peach Butter Recipe

Since it’s peach season, I’ve been making all sorts of things with them – cakes, bars, brown bettys and peach butter.Peach Butter

Peach butter is the summery alternative to apple butter, and it’s a great way to use up peaches that are a little overripe. It has a delicious, concentrated peach flavor. So, it’s like summer in a jar.

Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 c . chopped peeled peaches
  • 1/4 c . granulated sugar you may need to add more depending on the ripeness of your peaches
  • 2 T . lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Puree peaches until smooth.
  2. Add peach puree, sugar, and lemon juice to a large saucepan; stir to combine.
  3. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until peaches cooked down and have thickened. It took about 40 minutes for my peach puree to thicken.

    I’m making this right now and decided to add 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon. Let me tell you, it was the icing on the cake!

    Do you think this could be frozen? This recipe sounds awesome and I have a ton of peaches that I want to use up before they go bad which will probably yield more than one jar. Since you mention you’re not sure about the canning issue, I wondered if freezing was an option.

    Thanks, Barbara

      I haven’t tried freezing the peach butter, but I freeze my homemade applesauce. The ingredients and consistencies are pretty similar, so I don’t see any reason that it couldn’t be frozen. If you try it, I would love for you to let me know how it works because I’m sure that other people would like to know, too.

    Perfect timing. We just bought a case of peaches. What types of things can you use peach butter on besides bread?

      That’s great! You can put it on bread, English muffins, muffins, etc., just like you would with jam. Also, I like to warm it and put it on my pancakes, waffles, and French toast.

      Thanks!! I’m sorry to say that I next to nothing about canning. Since it’s a food safety issue, I would hate to tell you that it’s ok to can it unless I was absolutely sure that it was. Again, I’m sorry that I can’t be more helpful on that.

          This can be canned, after you put in jars, do a water bath for 10 minutes (after water starts boiling then start your timer for the 10 minutes). after jars seal then store.

      That’s awesome!! It can be difficult to find a use for overripe fruit, but you don’t want to just throw it out. So, I’m glad you found this recipe!! =)
