My Kitchen, Today

.
.
Here is a picture from my kitchen today.

.
Today I am making Peach Butter.
.
This is the time of year that I go on and on in the most annoying way about my love for pumpkins. (Have you heard? I LOVE pumpkins!!)
.
Peaches are my all time favorite fruit though.
.
I've never made Peach Butter. I've made Pumpkin Butter (SO good!) and I've had Apple Butter (it's alright) but never Peach Butter.
.
Where does the butter come into the name? Is it because it tastes good with butter? Because there is no butter in the recipe. I bet that's it, it tastes good with butter. (very very)
.
At first I was going to go with a recipe that called for the same spices as my Pumpkin Butter recipe and as much as I love those spices, I decided I didn't want them in my Peach Butter. Then I went with a simpler recipe I found, sugar and a little cinnamon is all.
.
So as I type, the Peach Butter simmers on my stove, all the while my windows are open and a cool fresh breeze that is making friends with the cinnamon and peach, the cool air making it's way to my bare feet under the computer table.... And I think if my kids were home playing outside, getting along and giggling and I could hear them through the open windows, that would be the life.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE peaches too. And I'm sorry, there just ain't no peaches in North Carolina. So now - can I come to YOUR house?

P.S. Just want you to know that my "lamp" post I just put up is in no way a copy of your "clock" post. Honest. Really. Truly. I've begged for that lamp for years and my mama gave it to me when I went down on Labor Day and I've wanted to put that post up ever since, but the mountain pictures won out as being the first to get posted, so the lamp just got posted. Honest. Really. Truly. You do believe me, dontcha? 'Cause copycats are so annoying.

Dar- nope, it doesn't.

Ma- I'll think about sharing.

Gloria- Only if the lamp was massive and had broke would I of thought you were copyin' me. :-D

Awww, that was sweet. Georgia peaches must be the best. I was wondering the same thing though about the butter thing. I've had pear butter and it kinda threw me off.

Gorgeous photo!

I think you should try an experiment and see if peach butter, (or pumpkin butter) do well in the mail. And because I am your friend-I will participate and you can send some to me. Whattya think?
