Learn how to can peaches (it’s actually very straightforward) to make the most delicious peaches ever.

– Peaches – Lemon – Honey – Canning jars with lids and bands, large pot with rack, canning tongs, and a timer

Ingredients Needed:

Wash the peaches, slice them in half, then into quarters, and add to a bowl. Squeeze a little lemon juice over top to prevent them from browning as you work. Discard the pits.

Step 1.

Add the honey and water to a medium pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Place the peaches into the clean, hot jars, one at a time.

Step 2.

Add the honey syrup over the peaches to cover, leaving about 1/4-inch headspace at the top of the jars.

Step 3.

Process the jars for 25 minutes in a water bath. Remove the jars from the water and set upright onto a towel. Leave the jars be for 12-24 hours so they seal fully.

Step 4.
