My husband and I made these last night with 16 pounds of peaches. My parents have fruit trees, so I needed to find a way to easily use up a lot of peaches and we've already made peach preserves, so this was it. I've never had pickled peaches, but these are excellent. Just the right amount of spice, but we wound up with a lot of extra liquid when putting these in the jars, which I prefer to not enough any day! My four year old daughter had 3 peaches this morning when I was just trying them to see how they tasted. Thanks for a great recipe, I'm sure we'll make this next time there is another bumper crop of peaches. 2008 Update: Our peach tree produced a record crop this year and I made these with a friend. We used over 100 pounds of peaches for this recipe and are excited about our stash.(and tired too! :)) For each 4 pounds of peaches you can plan on getting about 4 pints (2 quarts). We multiplied the fruit by 5 for every batch we made (20 pounds) and only multiplied the syrup by 4 and still had plenty of liquid for canning. Again, an excellent recipe--especially if you have a lot of peaches you need to use up.


This was my first time making pickles peaches and they are delicious. I did mine in halves and added an anise seed pod to each jar along with the cinnamon stick and pretty! My mom said they were just like her grandma used to make :)


My daddy just loved these!!. I had remembered my uncle and my daddy talking about my grandmother making these and how much they missed them. Boy was daddy happy when he opened the jar! He said this recipe was a keeper.
