Make Your Own Peach Delight
I have a confession to make, I created this recipe completely on accident. I was making a lovely batch of harvest peach jam when the spice bag broke open. I let the spices simmer just a bit longer and voila! This thick sauce is perfect on Pancakes, Ice Cream, warm biscuits, as a topping for pound cake or in filled cookies.
Hopefully, you've already Prepared your Peaches
Once your peaches are pitted and peeled, you'll need
- 1 Quart finely chopped Peaches
Add 1/4 c. Lemon Juice to your fruit, stir.
Combine the following spices
- 1 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp. ground Allspice
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
In a Lg. saucepan Combine
- 7 1/2 c. Sugar
- Fruit/Lemon Juice Mix
- Spice Blend
Bring it to a boil (slowly!) over med heat until sugar is fully dissolved. Stir in 1 Pouch of Liquid Pectin and allow it to boil Hard at a rolling boil for 1 full minute.
Ladle into hot prepared jars, (skimming foam if necessary), leaving 1/4" headspace.
Adjust two-piece caps and process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
You'll notice that Peach Delight is considerably darker than Peach Jam, this is due to the ground spices. The peaches are still prepared with either fruit fresh, lemon juice, or ascorbic acid prior to the recipe.
