A super tasty fruit butter that takes advantage of fresh seasonal peaches and tops it off with the creamy notes only vanilla can add. Perfect on toast, English muffins or even spooned over some vanilla ice cream!
Peel peaches, remove pit and cut into chunks or slices and place in crockpot.
Cut each vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the vanilla bean seeds with a spoon and put seeds and the pods into the crockpot with the peaches.
Add the sugar and stir to combine.
Cover and cook on low 4 hours.
Remove the vanilla bean pods. Pour cooked peaches into the jar of a blender and cover. Carefully (the mixtures will be hot!) blend the peaches until smooth.
Pour pureed peaches back into crockpot and cover, but prop up the lid of the crockpot with a chopstick or other heat proof utensil to allow moisture to escape. Continue cooking on low for 1-2 hours, stirring every now and then to prevent peach butter from burning.
Pour into jars or containers and refrigerate for up to 2 months, freeze for up to 6 months or process in a hot water bath for 20 minutes.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
