How to make it

  • Prepare the peach pulp:
  • Wash, scald, peel, pit and chop the peaches.
  • Place the peaches in an 8-quart stock pot or dutch oven, with just enough water to prevent them from sticking, about 1/2 to 1 cup of water.
  • Put the lid on the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the peaches are soft.
  • Press the cooked peaches through a sieve or food mill. Measure the pulp.
  • Prepare the Peach Butter:
  • Stir in the sugar and honey.
  • Cook until the mixture thickens, about 30 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.
  • When it's almost done, it will start to spit and sputter so be careful that none of the peach butter splashes out onto your skin.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and pour into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch of head space.
  • Adjust caps. Process pints and quarts for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Makes about 6 pints.
