Simple Homemade Peach Butter

If you love fruit butters try this simple and yummy recipe for homemade peach butter.

Nothing Better Than Homemade

There is nothing better than homemade peach butter. Sure it takes a bit more time than picking it up off of a store shelf, but it is so worth it.

First of all, you know where all of your ingredients come from.I can use organic ingredients and not worry about what is in my peach butter.

I also like that I can control the amount of sugar in this recipe. Most people like double the sugar that I have used here, but actually this amount is a bit too sweet for me. If this recipe is not sweet enough for you feel free to add my sugar.

I love this simple recipe and the wonderful peach flavor, but if you like spices, lemon zest. or rum for the liquid, add away.
