    • 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.

        That looks delicious! How long will it stay fresh before it expires?

      One ugly headboard+one beat-up table+ an amazing carpenter with vision (with a little help from his side kick, me) = a really pretty creation just for my mom's birthday :-)

      Re: improve a cake mix ?

      I love all these suggestions! The Banana really sounds delicious. I've heard about the applesauce thing but I have never tried it yet. I am definitely going to try it this holiday season even if it's...

      Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar or old mayonaise jar. Then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use for cleaning or bug spray. This is great for ants!

      I like to substitute the Oil with applesauce they change over in equal parts on the measurements & add a small box of pudding mix into the batter.
