omimouse: Beatirx Potter mouse with a wicker basket on her arm (Domestic)
Sooo, peaches were on a really good sale this week. And I said to myself, I said, "Self, there was this really tasty looking post up a few months back about making peach butter." So I got out my nice sharp knives and my vegetable peeler and a cutting board and peeled and pitted and cut up something like two dozen peaches. They went into the crockpot, with some vanilla rum, a touch of lemon juice, some water, some sugar, and some cinnamon. Crock pot went to low for overnight.

Today, eating homemade bread with my peach butter slathered over it, all I can think is, 'Look on my food ye mighty, and *despair*'

Also, there is a ginormous pot of butternut squash soup that will go into an icewater bath as soon as people are finished grabbing bowls. Two of the squash that went into that came from my garden, and the chicken stock that I used was homemade. Later this week, I will be making spaghetti sauce with tomatoes that came from the garden.

Shrinking your carbon footprint is damn *tasty*.

There was a request for something a little more detailed than, 'some of this and that'.

About 12 peaches, peeled, pitted, and somewhat chopped
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup to 1 cup vanilla vodka
A squeeze of lemon juice
A light dusting of cinnamon

Pour liquids into crockpot. Take peach pieces and mix them with sugar and cinnamon, making sure to get the peach well coated. Pour peach into crockpot. If you're the mouse, this is where you add some water because you're nervous about burning the peach to the crockpot. Put crockpot on 'low' and let it go for several hours, stirring off and on. And I do mean several hours here.

Puree results (I love my immersion blender) and store using method of your choice. (We have some of the Ball freezer containers.)
