What does 40 lbs of peaches give you? 12 jars of peach and almond butter, and 9 jars of peach chutney! This is my second round of canning peaches…I hope you are not getting tired of peaches. I was intrigued by a recipe I found in a book (I’m so sorry…I can’t remember the name!!) that combined peaches, ground almonds, and almond extract to make a fruit butter. I have only had apple butter, and I had to try this one. I tried to limit the amount of almond extract I used because I feel that sometimes too much can make things taste a bit fake. I think the results are pretty good, if not a bit too sweet for my taste. If I was to make this again, I think I would definitely reduce the about of sugar. If anyone is interested in making this, I will try to figure out what book this recipe came from.
I know by now your weekend is about half way through right now, but I do hope all of you have a great weekend. I promise I will not subject you to another peach posts on Monday!
