Peach sauce is so yummy!
Pumpkin spice is a fall seasonal favorite yet most people associate pumpkin spices with pumpkins, squash, or apples.
This recipe makes a great use of summer peaches with a taste of fall. This pumpkin spiced peach (or pear) sauce is delicious in crepes, inside a cake, make into smoothies, baked into sweet breads or on pancakes. I also love using peaches to make Vanilla Peach Jam.
If you’re new to canning I highly recommend you read up on the home canning safety processes before using this recipe. Here’s a list of resources for you:
