and sweetened with Honey
Found on foodinjars
2 pounds white peaches
8 ounces honey
Pit, peel and chop peaches. Combine with honey in a small bowl and let sit until the honey dissolves into the fruit. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest from the lemon in strips. Cut zest pieces into little slivers and then cut slivers into tiny pieces. Add zest to peaches. Cut lemon in half and juice it into small bowl. Measure out three tablespoons and add to the fruit. If you do not have enough juice use bottled lemon juice. Scrape the peaches, honey, and lemon zest and juice into a pot and place over high heat.
Cook, stirring regularly, until the peaches soften, the liquid reduces and mixture becomes thick , about 10 to 12 minutes. You can use a potato masher to break down the peaches more if you desire smaller pieces. Remove pan from heat.
