Slather this on your morning toast, an english muffin or a corn muffin! The cinnamon and ground cloves add flavors that prevent the peach butter from being too sweet.

  • 14 cups coarsely chopped peeled fresh peaches (approx. 5.5 lbs)
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4-1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ cup quick-cooking tapioca
  1. In a 5-quart slow cooker, combine the peaches, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves. Cover and cook on low until peaches are very soft, stirring occasionally (approx. 8-10 hours).
  2. Stir in tapioca. Cook, uncovered, on high (approx. 1 hour).
  3. Pour into jars or freezer containers; cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.
  4. Cover and refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 1 year.
