Recipe: Peach Butter

In the fall I enjoy making peach butter.  Much like apple butter, peach butter is simply slowly cooked fruit with sugar and spices.  It's easy to make and a comforting addition to breads and baked goods made throughout the winter months.

Peach Butter Recipe

4 cups peaches
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water

Combine peaches and water and cook until the fruit is soft.  Add sugar; then slowly bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thick and clear.  Add spices of choice.  Suggestions: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves.

Words in the week...

"Words in the week" is meant to be a posting where I share words I hear during the week from song lyrics, quotes, signs....anything involving words that provoke interest and meaning to life.

For this week, and in celebration of autumn:

Foto Friday: Arrival of cold weather

I was going to our local library at about 2:00 pm when I saw these ice crystals hanging down in this tree.  Most days they should have melted already. Ahh, the visible arrival of cold weather.
