Homemade Peach Pie Filling
"Ditch that canned stuff and make your own Homemade Peach Pie Filling! Easy, delicious, and bursting with that spicy, sweet flavor that’s become a classic. The peaches are slowly simmered in spices until softened and ready to be used in whatever peachy way you desire!
have always maintained the outlook that homemade recipes are better than store-bought or restaurant options. There’s just nothing better than some fresh Apple Bread or warm Chocolate Chip Blondies straight from the oven. It fills your house with amazing smells and adds an aspect of comfort in the air. Your family is thrilled and you get to enjoy a treat as well.
I’m not one to usually buy canned pie filling unless I absolutely have to. That ends up being more often than I want to admit, but hey, we’re all busy. Sometimes we just have to do what we have to do. However, if I can help it, I like to can or make recipes like this Homemade Peach Pie Filling in advance. It’s just too good to settle for the canned kind and once you’ve had it, you’ll never want to go back."
Notes1. Reheating - To reheat, simply warm in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through. Let the rest of the warming and baking happen when you cook the recipe the peach filling is for.
2. Add other fruits - Peaches are great for pairing with other fruits such as apples, cherries, blueberries, etc. It adds a great flavor profile to your already righteous dessert.
3. Can I Use Fresh Peaches? - Of course you can! I simply use frozen organic peaches because they come already sliced and ready to go. Plus, they last longer than fresh peaches since life can catch up sometimes.
