It's that time of the year again...canning is in full force around the Palmer home and I love it! I've got a few great canning recipes coming these next few weeks, so if you've ever wanted to try canning and freezing fresh food for winter, now is the perfect time to take that leap. Below is the full, written recipe of my peach preserve recipe, you can also check out the narrated video of how to make the recipe on my YouTube channel!
I N G R E D I E N T S
6 C sliced, peeled and pitted peaches
1 tbs preservative
1 package of pectin
5 C of sugar
I N S T R U C T I O N S
1. Blanch peaches in boiling water for 30-60 seconds. This allows the skin to peel off very easily.
2. Slice peaches and put aside in a bowl until you have sliced all of them.
3. Combine peaches, pectin and preservative in a saucepan and stir until boiling.
4. Add all of the sugar to the mixture and stir until heavily boiling, then remove from heat.
5. Ladle peach mixture into half pint sized mason jars and put on lids.
6. Put the jars into a water bath canner or a large pot and fill with water. The water should come above the cans by 1-2 inches.
7. Boil the jars for 10 minutes, let cool, then remove the jars and allow them to seal on their own (they'll make popping sounds so you'll know!)
8. Serve on biscuits, toast, or even pound cake throughout the year when you want something fresh and sweet!
