Hands-on time 10 mins
Total time 2 hrs, 26 mins
Yield Makes about 3 cups
Try It With: Goat cheese crostini, grilled flank steak, or turkey burgers.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups peeled and diced peaches (about 1 1/4 lb.)
  • 2 1/4 cups seeded and diced plum tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (1.75-oz.) package powdered fruit pectin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Stir together all ingredients except rosemary and pepper in a 4-qt. microwave-safe glass bowl.

  2. Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes (mixture will boil). Stir mixture, and microwave at HIGH 12 to 16 minutes or until thickened. (You're going for the viscosity of pancake syrup here. The mixture will thicken to soft-set preserves after it cools and chills.) Stir rosemary and pepper into warm preserves. Cool mixture completely (about 2 hours). Serve immediately, or cover and chill preserves in an airtight container until ready to serve. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
