Isn’t that Peach Butter beautiful? About two years ago I was preparing to teach my first Bread Baking Class called Bread Baking 101. A few of the women who had signed up for this class did not only appreciate home baked breads, were not only lovers of bread baking, but actually milled their own wheat. These women were bread baking aficionados! I was not only impressed when I heard this, but I was admittedly a little nervous. Teaching women who mill their own wheat and make homemade bread for their families daily something new about bread baking was just a little concerning!
My favorite honey is of course raw and is from a local company called “Bee Blessed.” Their Gallberry Honey is my favorite! What great flavor!
We made many different types of bread including my Wholegrain Pan Rolls.
We also made my Peach Butter that was inspired by a trip to my local State Farmers Market in the early fall when the peaches were abundant and beautiful. Jars of golden honey were also calling out to me. That trip to the Farmer’s Market inspired this Peach Butter recipe. Be sure to spread them on my Wholegrain Pan Rolls or your favorite bread.
In a saucepan, saute your peaches with the orange zest and juice just until your peaches begin to softened about five minutes. The peaches will break down as you stir. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and let it cool before folding into softened butter. Place butter in Butter Bell or a butter dish in the refrigerator to harden.
Isn’t this the cutest thing?
