Peaches Sweet and Juicy

I love peaches the fresher the better. I love to make jams, cobblers,pies and this oh so sweet conserve. It use two of my ultimate favorite things Georgia Peaches and Georgia Pecans. It is great over ice cream. Give it a try.

Sweet Georgia Peach Pecan Conserve:

5 cups Peaches, ripe, coarse chopped

2 cups Sugar

1 Orange, medium, seeded/chopped

1/4 Lemon, seeded/chopped

1/2 cup Seedless white raisins (I prefer white raisins for this recipe but the black ones work just as well)

1/2 cup Georgia Pecans, chopped

Place peaches in a heavy enamel saucepan. Add sugar, chopped orange and juice, and chopped lemon and juice; mix to blend and let stand 1-2 hours. Place over low heat and cook until fruit gives off quite a bit of juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer, stirring often, until very thick. Stir in pecans and cook 5 minutes longer. Seal in hot sterilized jars. Put in a water bath canner and process for 15 minutes for pints.

Give this a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

See ya’ll really soon.
