Lucille’s Peach Honey
24 peaches with skins
2 large oranges with rind
2 large lemons with rind
16 cups sugar
30 pint canning jars
In a food processor or blender purée lemons and oranges until smooth. Add peaches to citrus mixture and puree until smooth. In a large saucepan combine the fruit mixture with sugar. Cook to a slow boil until thick. While still hot, fill canning jars leaving 1/4” head room and process in a water bath.
Servings: 30 pints
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 to 1½ hours
Notes From Paula’s Test Kitchen: We used a food processor. If peaches are out of season frozen peach slices work well. Recipe can be reduced by half. Use our Home Canning 101 tips to put up your Peach Honey. After making the peach honey we created an excuse to REALLY test the honey and decided to have afternoon tea and the honey on toasted English muffins. Divine!

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.
