Maybe my review is a poor representation of the recipe because I didn't follow the canning process. I was looking to make a cooked spiced peach recipe for a topping to put on Greek yogurt, so I found this and worked with it. I cooked the water, sugar and honey in a saucepan and added frozen peaches (found a bag on sale) and all the spices in ground form until heated through. I let it all cool and spooned some over my yogurt and MMMMMMMM! The combination was just what I was looking for. I am thinking of venturing into the world of canning, and when I do, I will turn to this recipe!
I haven't gotten to try these yet, but so far it looks good. took a lot less than 8 pounds, but I'm using 6 pints instead of 3 quarts. Also used ground allspice, and ground cloves. just put a dash in each jar, and 1/2 a stick of cinnamon.
Used 10 lbs of peaches from our neighbor's tree. It made 8 pints, and still have enough liquid for another pint. They look gorgeous. One pint didn't seal so, I'm putting it in the fridge for a few days before tasting, as I want the flavors to run through. Too bad the spices weren't cooked in the liquid, as I love the smell of canning spices. I am excited to taste these. However, I packed the peaches tightly and they are still floating in the jar. Curious.
They taste delious!!! I would like to ask a question? How do I keep the peaches from floating up to the top and not so soft and mushy. I have packed them very tightly, and the still go up to the top. Thank you!
Going to try this but have a question. How does one treat the fruit to prevent browning?
Just made this recipe without variation. Used all the peaches but probably had enough syrup to make a second batch. Used very fresh,ripe local peaches so there was plenty of natural juice. Will probably save these for the winter holidays--the spices are a natural for that time of year. The left over syrup would make a nice hot spiced drink. . I'm sure these spiced peaches are going to be great tasting.
I had enough syrup leftover to fill double the quart jars with this recipe. I only had 6 lbs of smaller sizes peaches and they filled three jars exactly. Next time I will adjust the pounds of peaches to make a full canner. The peaches didn't float in the jars near as badly as with raw packing, but it was a little more work. The cinnamon sticks and whole spices look rustic and I think these will make nice gifts.
