Nana's Southern Pickled Peaches
Old Southern favorite. Great on picnics with cucumber sandwiches or at Sunday supper.
Great recipe! This was my first time making and trying pickled peaches. After reading a few reviews it decide to follow ELISAW's suggestion due to the amount of syrup leftover. I mare 5 lbs of freshly picked peaches and was able to canned 6 pints, 2 of which I added a star of anise due to a review I read but sorry, I was not a fan of that. Today I opened a left over jar that I had in the fridge and after eating the delicious peach that was left in the jar I realized that there's one serious problem with this recipe. That is that I wish I could pack more peaches in each jar. :) thank you for sharing this recipe and I'm looking forward to going back to the farm to pick more peaches, I want to make more on top of trying other canning recipes. Once again, thank you.
My husband and I made these last night with 16 pounds of peaches. My parents have fruit trees, so I needed to find a way to easily use up a lot of peaches and we've already made peach preserves, so this was it. I've never had pickled peaches, but these are excellent. Just the right amount of spice, but we wound up with a lot of extra liquid when putting these in the jars, which I prefer to not enough any day! My four year old daughter had 3 peaches this morning when I was just trying them to see how they tasted. Thanks for a great recipe, I'm sure we'll make this next time there is another bumper crop of peaches. 2008 Update: Our peach tree produced a record crop this year and I made these with a friend. We used over 100 pounds of peaches for this recipe and are excited about our stash.(and tired too! :)) For each 4 pounds of peaches you can plan on getting about 4 pints (2 quarts). We multiplied the fruit by 5 for every batch we made (20 pounds) and only multiplied the syrup by 4 and still had plent

These were absolutely delicious! And Easy! The only thing I changed is I only used 3 cups of sugar rather than 4, and it was plenty sweet for me. The only other thing that I would change, that someone else here mentioned as well...I'll probably double or triple the fruit for this recipe's amount of liquid. There's ALOT of syrup in the jar, and as tasty as it is, I think I'd like more peaches than syrup. Other than those two mods...these were as close to perfect as you can get.
Beyond fantastic! I had some fresh ginger so sliced that up too. Added cloves, cinnamon, ginger to spice bag and boiled with peaches (cut up peaches). Did a small batch of 4 cups. Need more peaches!
SIMPLY AMAZING FLAVOR! I USED APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, 3 C SUGAR,5 LBS PEACHES, 2 CINNAMON STICKS EACH & ADDED THE CLOVES ALONG WITH PEACHES. I STILL NEEDED MAYBE 1/2 LB MORE OF PEACHES AND HAD TO ADD A LITTLE H20 TO ONE JAR. THE 4 LBS ONLY YIELDED 3 FULL QUART JARS BUT I WANTED MORE PEACHES PER JAR. THANKS FOR SHARING. DELISH!
good but a little too much clove for me. Has a sort of Christmas flavor. may try again with less or no cloves. very tasty over vanilla bean ice cream though
