It has taken me a while to get to this last post about the big box of peaches that the husband bought me in Missoula. I had a lot of fun making all kinds of things with them from a peach and blackberry pie, roasted peach bundt cake, a regular peach pie and even an ahi recipe with a delicious salsa. A good peach recipe is something to keep so when I came up with one for low sugar peach blackberry jam I knew it would be something I would make every year if I had both fruits available. I had about a third of them left so I made a batch of low sugar peach jam – nothing special or extraordinary about it, but full of fresh peach flavor. The bulk of the rest of them went into a variation of a recipe adapted from the Ball Book of Preserving I have made before using other fruits.

  • Add the peaches and return to a boil.
  • Lower the heat and let the mixture cook until it thickens and becomes syrupy. Cook for about 2 – 2 1/2 hours. I just let it simmer until it’s to a consistency I like.
  • While the mixture is cooking get your canner and jars ready. The jars need to be hot when the peach sauce is poured into them. 
  • Ladle the hot sauce into the hot jars leaving 1/2″ headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace. Wipe rim and center lid on jar. Screw on band to fingertip tight.
  • Place jars in canner making sure they are covered with at least 2″ of water. Bring to a boil and process 20 minutes (adjust for altitude – I add 5 minutes to my processing time.) Remove from heat, wait 5 minutes and remove jars from canner.

How is the Peach Recipe?

I haven’t cracked any of the jars that I canned but I was able to taste the finished product by licking the spoon and it’s really tasty. The first thing I am going to use this on is going to be scallops I think because I know that pairing is going to be amazing. Or maybe even Chilean sea bass – now I am getting all kinds of ideas.

The other two variations I have made are Plum Sauce and Apricot Sauce.
