About Homemade Peach Preserves

I'm a colossal peach lover every summer; I stock up and make Peach Preserves so I can enjoy my peaches all year long. In my peach preserves, I use cinnamon because I like peaches and cinnamon together}, but if you do not, you can leave it out. Also, you can add more or less sugar to taste depending on how sweet your peaches are.

I love my peach preserves on toast, biscuits, and cornbread. Some other ways you can use the peach preserves as a dressing for chicken or a sauce, in cakes, pies, and pancakes. My children love it when We make peach bars with it, similar to " lemon bars but|made out of the peach preserves. The peach preserves work well in almost anything on the sweet side, and next to strawberry, it is my favorite preserves.
