Brandied Peach Butter With Spearmint
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
18 peaches (to 20) -- fully ripe
1/2 cup water -- or more as needed
1/4 cup brandy
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups sugar
18 spearmint or other mint sprigs - (to 25)

Pit, skin, and slice the peaches. Place them in a large pan with enough
water to prevent sticking and cook 15 to 20 minutes or until soft.

Puree the peaches in a food processor and return to the saucepan, adding
the brandy, lemon, sugar, and mint sprigs. Simmer over low heat, stirring
frequently, 30 to 35 minutes or until the puree thickens.

Remove the mint and fill clean 1/2-pint jars with peach butter to within
1/4-inch of the top. Wipe, seal, and process in a boiling water bath for
10 minutes.
