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!

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!

Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • 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. I haven’t tried it, but if you love apricots, I am sure it would work. Just a different flavor.

  1. I canned nectarines, pineapple and candied ginger …turned out fantastic
    I love making the butter mainly because it uses less sugar and very simple to make.

  2. 5 stars
    Delicious, I substituted granulated sugar and lemon juice for honey and lime juice ‘cause that’s what I had. I didn’t use an immersion blender; my peaches were overly ripe so I just squished them with a fork and left it a little chunky. Thank you for this recipe!

  3. This peach butter was amazing!! I stirred it in plain Greek yogurt and then added granola. It tasted as if I were eating peach crisp! I also made some homemade sweet rolls and, instead of putting brown sugar and cinnamon in the middle, I spread peach butter on the dough and then rolled it up. Super! I’m glad you woke at five and concocted this recipe 🙂

  4. Hello,
    Totally off the wall question here- but can you substitute the peach butter for ‘normal’ butter in a cookie recipe? Or, to be more concise, how would you incorporate this into a cookie that ended up like a Toll House chocolate chip cookie texture NOT CAKEY? I ended up with a flat of the most humongous peaches and all the cookie recipes I have tried thus far have had two problems. #1 CAKEY. (Bleh! I wasn’t looking for a muffin recipe…. )
    and #2 peach flavor dissipates to almost nothing. Sigh!

    1. I haven’t tried using the peach butter in a cookie. It is similar to applesauce and not real butter. I am guessing it will make cookies super moist and cakey.
