Canned – Spiced Honey Vanilla Peaches!

Spiced Honey Vanilla Peaches

 

I am a sucker for peaches! Recently I found two bushels of peaches at my front door. My Uncle has a Peach Tree in his back yard and this year he had an abundance of peaches that he decided to share with me. I was thrilled!

As I was debating what I was going to can with this years peach crop I decided upon Spiced Honey Vanilla Peaches. I had never canned these before but they sounded amazing and I knew that I had to give them a try!

Ingredients: 

7 lbs peaches peeled and sliced
2tbs vanilla extract
4 cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup honey
2 cups water
 

Directions:

1. Wash peaches and score an X at bottom of each peach.

2. Blanch peaches 1 minute in boiling water.

3. Immediately place blanched peaches into ice water and let sit for 1 minute.

4. Peel skin from peaches.

5. Slices peaches and remove from seed.

6. In large saucepan bring vanilla, cinnamon, honey, sugar and water to a boil over medium heat. Add sliced peaches and cook for 3 minutes. Pack peaches and liquid into sanitized quart jars leaving 1/4″ headspace. Take a butter knife along inside of jars to remove air bubbles. Place lids and process 30 minutes (remember to adjust for altitude).

Oh my goodness these peaches are amazing! I ended up canning 16 jars of them about a month ago and I only have 6 left! My family can’t get enough! Next year I will make sure to can many MANY more jars! Yum!

 

** Please remember canning can be dangerous. If you have never done this before then please read up on the importance of canning properly. Botulism  is a very serious illness!

  19. This sounds wonderful….my family would love them. Thank you for posting this.

  20. These sound awesome even though there’s a lot of sugar in them. I’d make them with a lot less sugar and allow the liquid to continue to cook until thickened so it gets the sweetness from the reduced syrup.
