A nod to the South, these easy preserved peaches make a great topping or filling for both sweet and savory applications.


  • 4 to 5 lbs. peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Georgia Peach Spice


Divide peaches between 4 sterilized pint size canning jars; pack the slices into the jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace at the top of the jar. Bring water, honey and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Whisk in Georgia Peach Spice and simmer mixture for about 2 min. Pour hot spiced syrup into prepared jars, making sure peaches are covered and leaving 1/2-inch headspace at the top of each jar. Seal jars with a 2-piece canning lid. Process jars in a boiling water bath for 25 min. (Tip: Jars should be covered by 1 to 2 inches of water.) Let jars cool completely and make sure lids have sealed. (Tip: The lids shouldn’t bounce back when pressed on.) Refrigerate any jars that didn’t seal; store sealed jars at room temperature and enjoy within 1 year. Use within a few weeks of opening and store in the refrigerator.

Serving Suggestions

“I was in Boulder and I made a point of stopping in your store near Pearl St. I had a terrific time. I love being able to buy small quantities of different spice mixtures/spices to try and I certainly bought my fair share on this visit.”

Last fall I was lucky enough to get my hands on a box of Palisade peaches. I used some of them to make this recipe. Having not canned before, I was surprised how easy this was. I could eat these straight out of the jar but, trying to show some restraint, I have been enjoying them in a yogurt & granola parfait in the mornings. Don't forget to save the syrup for cocktails!
