This is a really easy recipe and only requires 3 ingredients! Fresh Peaches which you don’t have to peel, water and sugar.
Its a simple recipe which anyone can do. It will yield around 2 half pints and one smaller jar and I dont think it will last long in the pantry! The butter is delicious!
Here is the recipe:
3 1/2 pounds peaches, washed & pitted
1 3/4 cups granulated white sugar
1/2 cup water
In a large saucepan, place peaches and water. Bring to a boil. Return to a simmer and cook until peaches are soft, about 20 minutes.
Run the peaches through a food mill or a sieve and discard the skins.
Add sugar to pulp and mix well.
Now reduce the pulp by one of the following methods:
SLOW COOKER: Place sweetened pulp in a slow cooker with lid partially off to let steam escape. Set at low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-12 hours or overnight, or until thick enough so the butter doesn’t run off a spoon when turned upside down.
STOVETOP: Place sweetened pulp in a medium saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 1-2 hours or until thick enough so the butter doesn’t run off a spoon when turned upside down.
Place hot butter in hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4″ headspace.
Cover with hot sterilized lids and rings.
Process in a water bath for 10 minutes.
Remove to counter and allow to cool before storing in a cool, dry, dark place.
