Peach butter recipe

If you love apple butter you will definitely love this recipe for peach butter!

I had some peaches I needed to use up so I decided to make a quick batch of peach butter. We love it on English muffins....that fresh sweet peach taste is amazing spread over a hot toasted muffin. Makes a great breakfast treat!

 But it's also good on crackers, toast, and of course ICE CREAM! I like to warm it up a bit in the microwave before I pour it on my ice cream.

You can't believe how good my kitchen smelled while this was cookin!
