What a Peach! Peach Month Preserves

There’s nothing like the sweet taste of peaches during the summer
The juicy pitted fruit with fuzzy skin makes for delicious desserts or a refreshing snack eaten straight off the tree.
Packed with vitamin C, peaches are often thought of as nature’s candy, available now at your local market while still in peak season. We’re celebrating the delicious fruit all month long with some peachy recipe favorites.
One easy way to preserve a large quantity of this flavorful fruit is with this recipe for Peach Ginger Butter from the All New Ball Book of Canning & Preserving. The sweet peach flavor with the hint of ginger makes for a slightly spicy spread, great on sliced baguette with herbed goat cheese or even a stack of breakfast pancakes!

Be sure to add this recipe to the menu for your Labor Day cookout plans. A beautiful golden orange color with red flecks, this Zesty Peach Barbecue Sauce will be the envy of any meat or fish you may be grilling. Try adding a bowl to your condiment spread, or even serve as a dip to tortilla chips!
It wouldn’t be a roundup of peach recipes without a tribute to peach pie! From Ball® Fresh Preserver, Angie Holden of The Country Chic Cottage, this recipe for peach pie filling can be made and preserved now so that you can enjoy a great tasting peach pie anytime of year. If you’re feeling adventurous you can make your own homemade crust, but any store-bought version will work just as well.


We love this recipe from the All New Ball Book of Canning & Preserving for Sweet Tea-Poached Peaches. Packing your peaches in fresh-brewed sweet tea is a tasty alternative to water or sugary syrup. Select your own favorite tea flavor for true customization.
Finally, make this Peach Bourbon Jam now so that you can enjoy the rich flavors come fall and winter. The flavor combination pairs nicely with just about anything. How about topping a homemade banana bread or glazing on grilled ribs?
