Peach Orange Conserve

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Not only is this delicious, it makes your house smell amazing while it is gently simmering away. It is so simple, except maybe the peach peeling part - but it is well worth it!

Peach Orange Conserve

2 oranges, unpeeled
1 tbsp coarsely grated lemon rind
3/4 cup water
8 cups coarsely chopped peeled peaches
6 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 stick cinnamon
3/4 cup slivered blanched almonds

After scrubbing oranges, slice thinly and coarsely chop, discarding any seeds. In small saucepan, bring oranges, lemon rind and water to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

In large Dutch oven, combine orange mixture, peaches, sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring frequently, for 55 minutes. Stir in almonds; cook for 5 minutes or until setting point is reached. Remove cinnamon.

Remove from heat; skim off any foam. Pour into prepared canning jars, leaving 5mm headspace. Process in boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
