Canning Recipes

Canning has long been a way to preserve fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy year-round. Many would say it’s a lost art, and we want to do our part in bringing it back. The process isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.

Peach & Jalapeño Preserves

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped and partially seeded (optional)
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp. powdered pectin

Directions: Begin with hot, sterilized jars. Add peach pieces to a dutch oven. Add the sugar, lemon juice, vinegar and pectin. Stir to combine and let sit for 15 minutes. Add peppers and turn to high heat. As the mixture heats up, take a spoon and gently mash peaches. Bring to boil and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Skim off any foam you see. Remove from heat and add to jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headspace. Remove bubbles and can.

Pack jars with mixture, completely covering onions in liquid mixture. Leave 1/4 inch space at the top of the jar. Remove air bubbles and can.
