Canning: Peach Peel Jelly
- Complexity: easy
Waste not, want not, right? Ok, so composting peach peels or feeding them to your chickens isn’t waste, but what if you could squeak a little bit more out for yourself? What if you could turn all of those peach peels into a beautiful and delicious Peach Peel Jelly first?
Step by Step Directions
To prepare the juice, place your peels and pits in a stock pot and just barely cover with water. Simmer for 30 minutes and then allow to steep overnight.
Strain the juice from the pot in the morning and discard (compost) the scraps.
In a large pot, whisk together the peach juice and pectin and bring to a full, rolling boil.
Add the sugar all at once.
Return to a full, rolling boil and boil until it sheets off the spoon. This took about 3 minutes for mine.
Ladle into glass jars. Wipe the rims clean and top with lids and rings.
Process in a water bath for 5 minutes.
Yields: 2 pints
