Pickled Peaches

by in Sep 2010

Ingredients:

  • 12 allspice berries
  • 8 sprigs fresh tarragon
  • 3 cups white balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 cups honey
  • 20 pounds peaches

Instructions:

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Slice an "X" on the bottom of the peaches. Place the peaches in the boiling water for 1 minute, remove with a slotted spoon to an ice bath for 2 to 3 minutes. Peel off the skin and cut into quarters.
Into 4 pristinely clean, 28-ounce canning jars add to each: 3 allspice berries, and 2 sprigs of tarragon.
In a large soup pan over medium heat, bring vinegar, honey, and water to a boil. Add the peaches and cook about 3 minutes. Remove peaches with a slotted spoon and pack them into the jars. Boil the syrup until it thickens, about 8 minutes. Pour the hot syrup over the peaches. Seal the jars and process 20 minutes. Store cooled jars in a cool, dry, dark place for at least 1 week.
Serve with a roasted pork loin.
