Maxwell is a pretty good sleeper. I usually feed him around 2:00 a.m. and 5:00-6:00 a.m. Once I am done feeding, Josh takes the baby and puts him back to sleep. Josh and Maxwell have no trouble falling back asleep after the 5:00-6:00 feeding, but it is hard for me to go back to sleep. I am a morning person and once the clock strikes 5:00, I am up for the day…even if I am super tired.

Last week, I was up at the crack of dawn feeding the babe and I was going to go back to bed, but the pile of peaches on our kitchen table started staring me down. They wouldn’t let me go to sleep until I did something with them:) So, I made homemade Peach Butter. It made sense at the time, but looking back I should have ignored the peaches and got some shut eye. Except, then we wouldn’t have any peach butter and I LOVE peach butter so the lack of sleep was worth it!

I wasn’t planning on blogging about this recipe because it is so easy, but I shared a photo on Instagram and several people asked for the recipe, so here you go! I aim to please!

Speaking of pleasing, we need your feedback. We post recipes on our blog every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It’s been that way FOR-EVER…saying that in my best Sandlot voice:) We also post a weekly lifestyle post on Thursdays, This and That.

Ok, back to the peach butter! This recipe is super simple, I basically made it in my sleep. I think I had one eye open:) Peach butter is great on toast, pancakes, waffles, stirred into oatmeal, yogurt, or even as an ice cream topping. Vanilla ice cream with peach butter…yes, please!

I just made a small batch for us to enjoy, but if you are into canning you can double, triple, or quadruple the recipe and do some major canning!

Put your peaches to good use and make a batch of Easy Peach Butter! It is so good!

5 from 1 vote


  • 6 cups chopped peaches skin and pits removed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar more or less depending on sweetness of peaches, adjust to your taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Place the chopped peaches in a large pot. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Heat the mixture over medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree the peach mixture until desired consistency. I like to leave a few small chunks, but you can puree it until perfectly smooth if desired. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can use a blender or food processor. Let the peach butter cool to room temperature and transfer the peach butter to a blender or food processor and puree.
  • Let the peach butter cool completely. Pour into jars and store in the refrigerator. It will keep for about two weeks.
  • Note-this peach butter can be canned. Peach butter is great on toast, biscuits, pancakes, waffles, stirred into oatmeal, yogurt, or used as an ice cream topping!

  1. Whatever you and Josh have time for on the blog is fine with me – your health, babies and hubby have to take center stage:) I do love the current format – would not mind if you move the This and That to the front page if it’s easier for you. Two recipes a week would be fine:)….seriously whatever works best for you!

  2. What a lovely peach butter Maria!! Do what feels right to you with your schedule! Being a mom is soooo much work! Your readers will love you no matter what 🙂 Happy Friday! xo

  3. Hi Maria,
    We like your current format but whatever changes you feel you need to make will be fine with us. More “This & That ” will be welcome, as will only two recipes. We love reading about your lives and kids. We have a son and daughter and five grand kids so that may influence our perspective a bit. Bottom line, we always look forward to your posts, whatever they may be.

  4. Your blog is great just like it is! When you have two children you have too set your priorities and family always comes first.

  5. LOVE your blog….stayed away from these as incessant chatter becomes tiresome, but yours (hubby and wife) is sweet, clear, concise, and a true pleasure to read.

    Made the recipe right away and added two over ripe pears to the mixture….delicious!

  6. Maria, I love so many of your recipes and will continue to turn to the index anytime I have a craving for a delicious, nutritious recipe as well as excellent cookies and desserts that my family will love. We just had the grilled chicken pineapple tacos the other night and they tasted wonderful! I also love reading the this and that section, and have enjoyed the pictures of your sweet new baby–I’d like them to be more front and center since I live in Davis county and do quite a few things on the weekend in Salt Lake–like shopping at Trader Joe’s. Certainly do what you need to do to take care of your boys; we will be fine with fewer posts, just don’t take the blog down because I use it as a resource every week. Your recipes and photos are to die for. Thanks so much for sharing.

  7. So excited to try the Peach Butter!

    I can’t imagine how much time it would take to maintain a blog. I would say do whatever is best for you and your family – the rest will work itself out. 🙂 I know you would like opinions from your readers, so: I only keep up with about 4 cooking blogs, they usually post MWF (but I wouldn’t feel badly at all if you cut back!) – I literally type in the blog name, look at the picture and skim through the first paragraph in about 10 seconds then on to the next blog, unless it is a recipe that I want to try. So- pictures are key (yours are great!) and I love the summary you give under the picture. Brief posts are great (usually shorter the better at this phase in my life). 🙂 I love “themes” – for instance weeks dedicated to meals with 5 ingredients or less, ethnic food month, kids helping in the kitchen, etc.

    Simplicity is good! One blog I used to keep up with has started to do a lot of giveaways and business/marketing type stuff – I liked the blog better when it was more recipe-focused. I do think occasional giveaways keep interest of some readers though.

    Love your recipes. Love that you asked for opinions. Do whatever is best for you. 🙂 And congrats on the beautiful addition to your family.

  8. Love you recipes but take the time off. Your health and family should come first.

    Have never tasted peach butter but this sounds so good. A freeze got all of the local peaches around here.

  9. My husband will love me forever if I make this…and we have a ton of peaches to get rid of…perfect timing, thanks!

  10. I agree with “Roni’s” philosophy “What-You-Can-When-You-Can” I love reading your blog, but will enjoy whatever you can do. I love the Recipes and “This n’ That” and would certainly enjoy hearing more about your family and the new baby on that blog….do what feel comfortable for you and your family. No mater what I will continue to be a faithful reader….Enjoy that wonderful family you have, they grow up and out so soon…….Hugs

  11. I so enjoy your website! I think all your followers can feel the love and effort you put into your work. But…with that said…do what you need to do and do not feel one ounce of guilt in the decision you make. You may need to cut back, get your bearings for awhile and then be able to kick it up a notch later. But listen to your head and heart…whatever you decide will be fine with us!

  12. I love your blog. I have made many of your recipes over the years. But, your family comes first. Cutting back to 2 recipes a week will be fine. You can increase as your family needs change. Take care and enjoy your little ones, they are only little for a very short time.

  13. I love This & That so please keep posting that. If you need to cut back on recipes I understand but love seeing the ones you do. I make a lot of them and go back to the older ones all the time. My favorite is your Chicken & Rice Soup, really good. Just do what you do and blog when you can, I love reading it.

  14. I like the three recipes a week, but I have a 13 month old and understand that doing three per week can be a lot to juggle. What if it were to be 1 a week that is always a salad or sandwich – something that is an interesting and tasty idea, but not necessarily a “recipe” with exact measures or even instructions?

  15. I know that This and That comes on Thursdays but to be honest I never noticed that your recipes were on a regular Monday/Wed/Fri schedule. I am always happy to see them in my inbox but I’m not keeping score 🙂 So do what you can, when you can, and don’t feel guilty about cutting back if that makes sense for you right now. I’m so behind on recipes anyway! And thank you.

  16. Could this be made with frozen peaches? I usually freeze some, and it would be great to make this recipe this winter!

  17. OMG – this is azaming! So simple, yet so freaking delicious!! I made a batch Saturday evening, then had it rolled up in crepes w/greek yogurt for breakfast. Thank you for sharing!!!

  18. This post just makes me so excited for Christmastime. I am making jam (and now peach butter too!) and homemade bread for some friends this year.

  19. I love whatever you dish out. I didn’t even realize you had a schedule aside from knowing the I enjoy This and That every Thursday morning and I know right where to find them should I miss it. I use your recipes all the time and will take them as often as you can give but would never ask you to put those babies down for us! If you don’t get to it today, we will all just have to wait til tomorrow. Just like the old poem says, keep rocking that baby, because babies don’t keep!!

  20. Babies are babies for the blink of an eye, and so few of us get the chance to enjoy it. You do what you have to do during this very short time (relative to life) to take care of your boys and yourself. Work life balance is so difficult, but you know when it feels right (or doesn’t). Plus you are in one of the hardest/sweetest parts right now. 6 months from now everything will be different and way more normal, and you will be like “where did that tiny baby go!!?”

  21. Your family comes first! So do what works best for you and your family to be happy and healthy. I subscribe by email, so I see every post (the way I like it!) and get the newsletter. It wouldn’t bother me in the least if the “This & That” posts were on the main page. I’d say if you did move it there – to still corral them in a location for readers to revert back to if they can’t remember a link or something you posted in that. Love all of the recipes you post – including the kid posts!

  22. Just made 5 batches of this recipe (also have a peach tree that is raining peaches on me right now) and it is DELISH!!!!! And it is beyond easy to make (I also have a newborn girl 07/31). Thank you for the amazing post and congrats on your new little one:)


  23. Babies are babies for such a short time. Post only two recipes a week and spend the extra time with your babies. Write a note at least a couple of times a week in a journal about each child. I regret that I did not do so when my children were young.

  24. I don’t ever read this or that but enjoy receiving your recipes.  Maybe giving an option on subscribing that people can choose.

  25. Hello! On my 3rd batch of peach butter in 2 days. Pretty much had it going before finding your recipe…but was going for peach puree. We live on the Western Slope in Colorado (Palisade Peaches) and someone is always bringing their “extras” over to share! It’s deelish! Thanks

  26. Wondering if I could leave the peels on and use a food mill to process the peaches instead of an immersion blender? I usually do this for applesauce (actually, with applesauce, I don’t even remove the seeds because the food mill catches those too!) but not sure if the peach peel is too soft and may end up in the end product? Thanks in advance!

  27. 5 stars
    Ok, I have to ask – why is it called Peach Butter when butter is not an ingredient? Sounds delish though!

    1. There is no butter in the recipe:) It is called peach butter because of the rich, smooth, buttery texture…kind of like apple butter but with peaches.
