Pickled Peaches

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Serving Size: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2- Quart Mason Jars
  • 1 1/4 cups rice vinegar
  • 1 cup plus 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 4-5 ripe peaches, cut into sixths

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine the rice vinegar, maple syrup, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  2. Cook until sugar is dissolved (check for grains on the back of a spoon). Warm the mixture slowly, and avoid boiling, you want to keep the pickling liquid warm, but not hot to keep the peaches from cooking.
  3. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove it from the heat. If it is hot to the touch, allow it to cool.
  4. Divide the ginger and peaches into two jars, layering the ginger first, with the peaches on the top.
  5. Pour the pickling liquid over the peaches, making sure all the peaches are totally covered.
  6. Cover with lids and refrigerate for 1-2 weeks, testing after the first week to check the flavor.
  7. Eat the peaches within the month.
