Peaches are in full season right now. I've been loving heading to the farmer's market to get fresh local peaches every Saturday. Mostly, I just love to eat them fresh. I'm one of those crazy people who can't bite into a peach though...I need to cut it with a knife. I'm not sure why.
But eating peaches fresh isn't the only way I like to enjoy them. Frozen peach slices are great to add to smoothies or homemade frozen yogurt. They also work great in pies or cobblers. I've always been a fan of peach jam, but I don't really want all the added sugar or preservatives.
So I decided to try my hand at making my own peach butter. Click the title of this post or the "read more" link to see how it went.
Nah forget it. I'm sticking with Peach Butter.
It didn't take me long to get through this stuff. I only made one jar since it was my first time trying it out. I wasn't sure if it was going to turn out so I didn't want to make too much. But now that I know how much I like it, I'm gonna make a much bigger batch next time and put in jars for the winter.
I used this stuff for everything, which is why it didn't last very long. I spread it over toast, added it to my yogurt, topped muffins with it, and even added it to a roast chicken wrap. It's a pretty versatile condiment, and it's got nothing in it except for peaches and spices!
