Crockpot Peach Butter

When we were first married, we had a huge garden and when it was harvest time I was busy canning and freezing fruits and vegetables for days. Now that the house is empty, we still garden, just not to the same extent. Now my preserving is scaled back and I don’t actually “can” anything. I do still make a few of our favorite recipes, they just are done on a much smaller scale.

The peach tree in our backyard decided to give a small harvest this year, just enough for a few bowls of fresh peaches and several half pints of Crock Pot Peach Butter. We don’t use any insecticides on our trees, so the bugs are definitely a nuisance. Thankfully, I was able to pick peaches at just the right time, to make that on coveted batch of Crock pot Peach Butter for the year.

My husband has been busy eating peach butter on crackers and my co-workers enjoyed it on toasted English muffins.

Crock pot Peach Butter was just the right size batch to last our family for several months. I put it in the freezer in the jelly jars, so it’s easy. The crock pot does most of the work. I just make sure the jelly jars are sterilized and hot, fill with the peach butter, allow to cool and freeze. Don’t forget to leave a bit of head space so they don’t explode in the freezer. If you want to make bigger batches of Crock pot Peach Butter, you will probably want to can your batch. Follow the directions from the local county extension office to ensure your preserving is done correctly.
