Every year we use fresh, local fruits to create a wide variety of jams, preserves, chutneys and more. With the opening of The Barlow we haven’t had a lot of time to either shop for the fruit or stand over bubbling pots of sugared fruit. Until now.
Yesterday we went to Eger Brothers farm stand and bought a bushel of peaches. Shortly thereafter said peaches were peeled and chopped only to be turned into one of our guests’ favorite jams – Peach Raspberry (made even more tasty with a touch of vanilla). Today the remaining chopped peaches became a yummy Peach Amaretto Butter (less sugar and more intense fruit flavor).
Summer has a long way to go and we have a lot of jars to capture all the season’s best!
