So it might seem like a small thing, but fruit butters, man, they are so ridiculously yummy and we can’t believe they’ve managed to fly under the radar for so long! While apple butter is a favorite, especially in the fall when we’re making everything and anything with apples in it, peach butter is summer’s own offering to the fruit butter realm…and it is addictively good.
Not only does this stuff taste amazing, but it’s super easy to make. Victory! While some recipes might have you stirring a saucepan for 2 hours – hard pass, thank you very much – we’re making our peach butter in the slow cooker; it takes a couple hours, but those are hours where you don’t have to do anything but kick your feet up. So, here’s what it all comes down to. Fresh peaches (you really can’t beat the flavor) get puréed and then mixed with sugars and spices in the slow cooker. Lid goes on and it all just simmers away for a while, before you crack the lid open so that the whole mixture can thicken.
