Directions

Step 1

Prepare a bowl of ice water large enough to hold all

the peaches. If you do not have one, you may need to do this

in batches. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Drop the

peaches in for 5 seconds and then carefully lift them out and

place them in the ice water. This will help you to peel the

fruit. Once peeled, remove the pits and cut the fruit into

wedges.

Step 2

Place the peaches, sugar and lemon juice in a non

reactive pot and macerate for 3 hours.

Step 3

Simmer for one hour or until desired consistency.

(MARMELADE)

Step 4

Just before taking off the heat, add the flowers and

mix them into the compote. Immediately transfer to prepared

canning jars (while still boiling) and seal the jar. Turn the

jar upside down for five minutes before turning right side up

to store. As the fruit cools it will create a vacuum seal for

your preserve. This will last sealed in the refrigerator for

up to 3 months but I don’t think it will last that long.
Enjoy!
