fresh clingstone peaches, blanched and peeled
5 (3 inch)
My husband and I made these last night with 16 pounds of peaches. My parents have fruit trees, so I needed to find a way to easily use up a lot of peaches and we've already made peach preserves, so this was it. I've never had pickled peaches, but these are excellent. Just the right amount of spice, but we wound up with a lot of extra liquid when putting these in the jars, which I prefer to not enough any day! My four year old daughter had 3 peaches this morning when I was just trying them to see how they tasted. Thanks for a great recipe, I'm sure we'll make this next time there is another bumper crop of peaches.
2008 Update: Our peach tree produced a record crop this year and I made these with a friend. We used over 100 pounds of peaches for this recipe and are excited about our stash.(and tired too! :)) For each 4 pounds of peaches you can plan on getting about 4 pints (2 quarts). We multiplied the fruit by 5 for every batch we made (20 pounds) and only multiplied the syrup by 4 and still had plenty of liquid for canning. Again, an excellent recipe--especially if you have a lot of peaches you need to use up.
This was my first time making pickles peaches and they are delicious. I did mine in halves and added an anise seed pod to each jar along with the cinnamon stick and cloves...so pretty! My mom said they were just like her grandma used to make :)
My daddy just loved these!!. I had remembered my uncle and my daddy talking about my grandmother making these and how much they missed them. Boy was daddy happy when he opened the jar! He said this recipe was a keeper.
These were really good. Didn't take too long to make, either. Brings back memories of my grandmother's cooking!
I have never eaten pickled peaches besides the ones they have sold at grocery stores. I decided to make these because they looked really good. These were simply amazing! My grandma wanted the recipe, and we're making them tonight for the second time. We put two cinammon sticks in each jar and left them overnight. We couldn't stop eating them the next day, and cleaned off eight peaches in one day. Thank you for this recipe. I'll be making these for Thanksgiving.
It's exactly like my mother used to make. She used white cling peaches and they were wonderful. Point of reference, I'm now 74 years old and this is the first time I've seen this recipe.If any of you have access to white cling peaches, I urge you to try this recipe. I'm sending it to my daughter in law. They have a very small (personal orchard) orchard with a couple of peach trees, among the apple trees. I hope she will give this a try. Thanks for warming an "old" gal's heart with this bit of nostalgia!
Incredible. Great pickled peaches.
This was so easy and tasted great, even if I looked in my cinnamon jar and found nothing there. So I put in some powdered cinnamon and just threw in a handful of cloves. Still great. Don't think they'll last long, so have to make another batch!
