  1. Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars and lids in simmering water until ready to use. Do not boil. Set bands aside.
  2. Wash, peel and pit peaches. Leave peaches in halves or cut into slices, if desired. Treat fruit to prevent browning.
  3. Combine sugar, water and honey. Cook until sugar dissolves. Add peaches in syrup one layer at a time and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Pack hot peaches into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Add 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp cloves and 1 stick cinnamon to each jar.
  5. Ladle hot syrup over peaches leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center hot lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight.
  6. Process filled jars in a boiling water canner for 25 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

Maybe my review is a poor representation of the recipe because I didn't follow the canning process. I was looking to make a cooked spiced peach recipe for a topping to put on Greek yogurt, so I found this and worked with it. I cooked the water, sugar and honey in a saucepan and added frozen peaches (found a bag on sale) and all the spices in ground form until heated through. I let it all cool and spooned some over my yogurt and MMMMMMMM! The combination was just what I was looking for. I am thinking of venturing into the world of canning, and when I do, I will turn to this recipe!


I haven't gotten to try these yet, but so far it looks good. took a lot less than 8 pounds, but I'm using 6 pints instead of 3 quarts. Also used ground allspice, and ground cloves. just put a dash in each jar, and 1/2 a stick of cinnamon.


Used 10 lbs of peaches from our neighbor's tree. It made 8 pints, and still have enough liquid for another pint. They look gorgeous. One pint didn't seal so, I'm putting it in the fridge for a few days before tasting, as I want the flavors to run through. Too bad the spices weren't cooked in the liquid, as I love the smell of canning spices. I am excited to taste these. However, I packed the peaches tightly and they are still floating in the jar. Curious.
