Peach Pie Recipes

Peach Pie recipes can be adapted by adding a hint of cinnamon or a dash of almond extract. Or leave the seasonings out for an easy traditional dessert.

Peach pie recipes can be processed safely in a Water Bath Canner


Prepare

Gather your canning supplies

Ingredients

  • Peaches - enough to make 6 quarts peeled and sliced.
  • Sugar -7 cups
  • Clear Jel, flour or corn starch. - 2 cups and 3T
  • cold water -5 1/4 cups
  • 1 tsp cinnamon - optional
  • 1 tsp almond extract - optional
  • bottled lemon juice - 1 3/4 cups

I have always used flour for a thickener in my pie fillings. I now switched to clear jel. It will give you a nicer filling with more consistent results when you are canning.

If you use Clear Jel be sure you purchase the non-instant or regular type. Click here for more information. Clear Jel

Start by preparing jars, and get water in your canner heating.

Procedure

Peel your peaches 

  • Do this by dipping peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute. I use my blancher and do 5 or so peaches at a time. This depends on the size of the peach.
  • Immediately remove the peaches to a sink or bowl with cold water to stop the cooking.

Slice the peaches in half and throw away the pit. You'll notice a 'seam' down one side of your peach. If you slice around the diameter of the peach following this line you will be able to pluck the pit right out.

  • Skins should slip right off in your hands. If your peach is a little green it will be harder to skin. you can just use a paring knife for the stubborn spots.

Slice peaches into 1/2 to 1 inch slices. To prevent browning of peaches you will want to slice the peaches into a pot with a light syrup. 

Or treat with Fruit Fresh. This should be available in the canning sections at the grocery store or the hardware store. Follow the instructions on the package.

Bring water to a boil in a large pot. In batches of about 6 cups each place peaches into boiling water. Boil peaches 1 minute after the water returns to a boil. Drain but keep warm in a large pot or bowl. Prepare about 6 quarts sliced peaches. 

Combine water, sugar, and clear jel, flour or cornstarch in a large pot. Heat and stir until mixture begins to thicken and bubble. Add lemon juice and any spices or flavorings and boil 1 minute more.
