Chunky Peach Spread

Here's a fruit spread that captures the best tastes of late summer. I like that it's low in sugar and not overly sweet, which lets the fresh peach flavor shine right through. — Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    about 3-1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 7 medium peaches (2 to 2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  • Fill a large saucepan two-thirds full with water; bring to a boil. Cut a shallow “X” on the bottom of each peach. Using tongs, place peaches, a few at a time, in boiling water 30-60 seconds or just until skin at the “X” begins to loosen. Remove peaches and immediately drop into ice water. Pull off skins with tip of a knife; discard skins. Chop peaches.
  • In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand 1 minute. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine peaches, sugar and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Mash peaches. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Add gelatin mixture; cook 1 minute longer, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Cool 10 minutes.
  • Pour into jars. Refrigerate, covered, up to 3 weeks.
