A very simple, homemade peach butter recipe. That uses 3 ingredients! A beautiful fruit butter, that is great on toast, oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese. Great to bake with. Makes a wonderful gift, for that special someone in your life.
So easy to do. I used my crock-pot, and it came out great! You can double the recipe without any issues. Great for gift giving, freezing, or canning.
Here’s what I did: I peeled the peaches, and diced them. Placed them right into the crock-pot. I used 8 cups of freshly peeled and diced peaches. I added 1 cup of packed brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Set the crock-pot on low, and cooked for 6 hours. I would lift the lid and stir the fruit, here and there. I mostly, just wanted to peek in and see how it looked. Of course, a little taste testing was in order. I came to the conclusion that it’s pretty darn good! After the 6 hours are up, I let the slow cooked fruit, slightly cool. I used my immersion blender to turn the fruit into a smooth and delicious fruit butter. I ended up with 5 cups of peach butter. I spooned the peach butter into clean jars with lids. I made sure the peach butter was completely cool, before placing in the refrigerator, or freezer.
Grab some peaches and make this easy and delicious peach butter!
