what to do with left over peach juice

scummings(6)August 26, 2008

I canned peaches and while slicking them I put them in water with fruit fresh, as the pot filled up the juices added up. I didn't use this to can them, but i put it in a jar in the fridge.

Can this juice be used to make jelly or something? I hate to waste it, it's so tasty. I used some in a smoothie last night...

Yes, and you can even add a few small bits of peaches, apricot, plum or pluot to make a nice jam. If you do, make sure it has enough acid beyond ascorbic. Something like citrir or an acid blend will bring up flavor some too.

Make your own Peach Iced Tea!

I often add Juice from various fruits to lemonade or tea.
I freeze my berries, so when I thaw, I end up with the leftover juice. If I don't need it for my recipe, it 'flavors' an iced drink.

Deanna, thank you for your tip. My first thought was the same as Ken's, but I really like what you do with the juice. I, too, like flavored ice tea and lemonade.

Another idea - my personal favorite...
Add ice cubes and spiced rum. The perfect way to end a day of canning peaches (smile!).

Thanks for all the tips. I love flavored teas also, but the rum idea really sounds good right now!

I did use some in a cantaloupe/yogurt smoothie the other night, it was really yummy.

I used my leftover peach juice plus the leftover medium syrup I canned them in for a brine for chicken. It was wonderful! I added a cup of salt, submerged a chicken in it, and left it there for ten hours, then roasted the chicken. The chicken was wonderful, tender and juicy.
