Lucille’s Peach Honey

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
Difficulty: Easy

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!

Made peach honey today by this recipe and it tastes great! My honey came out much darker than shown in the picture with the recipe. What did I do to cause the dark color? I want a nice, bright colored peach honey.

I make peach jam every summer and I thought this would be wonderful also, but, I think the ingredients and the number of pints made is way off….I don’t believe that 24 peaches cooked down can produce 30 pints…maybe 1/2 pints. I also looked at Sweet Georgia Peach Honey and it’s more apt to be correct than this recipe.
