Peach Butter

Mmm...this turned out very yummy!
It did take a long time, but I think it was worth the wait (and mess!)

I started with about 2 pounds of peaches and got 1 pint and 1 jelly jar of butter, so I'd guesstimate that you'll need 1 1/2 pounds of peaches per pint.

Peach Butter
yield 3 pints

4 1/2 pounds peaches
4 cups sugar

The first step is to blanch and peel the peaches, then remove the pits and make into pulp with a food processor, food mill, stick blender or, as I did, a potato masher.

Add 4 cups peach pulp and sugar to saucepan and simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally and with more frequency as it becomes thicker.

Fill hot pint jars with butter, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Add lids and rings and process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
