I recently had peach butter at a restaurant that was fabulous! So I searched the internet and found a recipe from Gale Gand to try. It is really good and simple to make. You can use it on waffles, muffins, breads or just about anything you’d like! It also would make a nice gift presented in a pretty glass jar with a cute little ribbon.
- 1/2 cup cut up peaches, fresh or frozen
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 pound salted butter
In a small saucepan, bring the peaches, orange juice and sugar to a boil. Turn down the heat and continue cooking until the peaches are tender and cooked down to a jam-like consistency. Let cool. In a bowl, using a wooden spoon, blend the butter with the cooked peaches, making a “compound” butter. Chill in a ceramic pot till ready to use and soften slightly when serving.
