Can I can leftover syrup from peaches?

harvestingfilth(6-6B)August 12, 2011

Do I have to do anything special to it? The recipe I used called for making 6 quarts of whole peaches, but I cut them up and ended up with fewer pints, and a lot of syrup left over. The syrup has a touch of amaretto in it.

Can I just strain the peach bits out and then cook it down for a few minutes and can it? Do I need to add any acid? Could I add a vanilla bean while cooking it down?

Thanks--been searching my books and this forum, but can't find anything specific to answer my question.

Sure. Yes to all. Use the processing time as for peaches. You don't need to add acid, though you may find you want to add a bit if the flavor of the syrup (especially cooked down) is excessively sweet and needs a bit of tang. The vanilla bean is fine, though you may find the amaretto is already sufficient.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I decided to pick all of my last batch of blackberries and can them in the syrup instead. They are delicious!

Now I'm getting into this syrup thing. Off to look for nice bottles that I can bwb can instead of jars!
