Peach Pie Filling

With all of those peaches it was a given I would be baking cobblers and pies. I want to share with you an excellent recipe for making peach pie filling. You can can this filling and put it away on your pantry shelf for those long cold winter days when a sun ripened peach would make the day more cheerful.

Wash, peel and slice your peaches. This is really easy. Using a pot of boiling water you can dunk the peaches for about 1 minutes then immediately take them out and plunge them into a a container (or sink) of cold water to stop the cooking process.

The skin will slip right off with little effort on your part.

Slice the peaches.

Use a product like fruit fresh to keep your fruits from turning brown.

For the pie filling I made 7 quarts at a time using 6 quarts of sliced peaches.

In a large deep stock pot mix:

5 1/4 c. cold water
1 3/4 c. bottled lemon juice
7 c. granulated sugar
2 c plus 3 tbsp Clear Jel

While stirring over medium heat bring the mixture up to a boil. You will feel the mix begin to thicken as you stir. It will thicken quickly and while scorch if you don’t work fast. I use a large whisk and keep everything moving while scraping the bottom and the sides of the pot. Boil for 1 minute and remove from heat. The bottom will scorch if you just leave the pot on the eye turned off.

Add in the peaches and mix well. The cloudy look is normal. Don’t worry. After processing the filling will become crystal clear.

Using hot sterilized jars fill the jars leaving 1 1/4 inch of head space. The filling will expand in during processing and will rupture the lids if you don’t leave enough head space. Apply lids and bands.

Process quart jars in a boiling water bath for 30 minutes.

Once the jars have completed processing the filling becomes clear and the jars are gorgeous. A dozen of these on your pantry shelves will bring many smiles to your face and those of your family when you bake a pie filling with summer time goodness during the gray snowy days of winter.

Recipe for 1 quart of peach pie filling:

3 1/2 c. sliced peaches
3/4 c. cold water
1/4 c. bottled lemon juice
1 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c plus 1 tbsp Clear Jel

Let them eat pie! A cobbler! and Tarts!

    Thank you for posting a recipe with cornstarch! Can you use less sugar? My peaches are so amazingly sweet and juicy right now. I do not want to add extra sweetness. Is it possible to make your recipe with less sugar? Say 3 1/2-4 cups sugar? Thank you!

  • Diane says:

    Debi; I see no reason you couldn’t adjust the amount of sugar

  • Emily says:

    Is Fruit Fresh and Clear Gel the same thing?

  • Diane says:

    No no not at all. Fruit fresh keeps for from Browning, clear jell is what thickens the juice

  • Good article. I certainly appreciate this website. Continue the good work!

  • Sue Black says:

    What exactly is clear jel. Is it the same as pectin

  • Robin higginbotham says:

    Is clear jel pectin

  • Diane says:

    Clear jell is not pectin and therefore not the same as sure jell. Don’t confuse the two. Clear jell has the same properties as corn starch not pectin.

  • jan Williams says:

    Where do you find Clear jell.
    Since you said it has same property as cornstarch, can we make our own?

  • Diane says:

    Google it. But it online if you can’t find it local.cornstarch separates in a fashion cleatjell doesn’t.I bought mine on Amazon.. one jar makes a ton. Worth the money

  • Cindy Geisler says:

    Hello….I just want to make sure that I am reading this right…
    for the peach pie filling, it needs 1 1/4 inches of headspace?

    That just seemed like a lot.


  • Diane says:

    I always take a measurement from the top of the jar not the shoulder, if that makes sense

  • Carol Guenther says:

    Can you use this clear jell with already canned peaches in med.-heavy syrup?

  • Lori Peterson says:

    I made a batch of this and what wouldn’t fit into the jars we are. Amazing!!! We couldn’t get enough of it so I ordered more clear jel and made the rest of our peaches into this filling. We are going to eat so well this winter!!!! Thanks for such a great recipe!

    I am looking for a peach pie filling made out of the skins. My Aunt used to make Peach Pickles and used the peelings to make a pie filling. No one knows about this! I know we weren’t the only family that had this. Surely! Lol! It was the best for making fried peach pies.

  • Willian Hess says:

    Throughout the great scheme of things you get an A+ with regard to effort. Where you actually lost everybody was first on your specifics. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct here. Having said that, let me say to you just what did deliver the results. The writing is certainly extremely persuasive which is probably the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can easily see a jumps in reasoning you make, I am not necessarily sure of just how you seem to unite the ideas that make the conclusion. For right now I shall subscribe to your point however hope in the future you actually connect your dots much better.

  • vivian parker says:

    This is a reply for Jan Sturkie. My mother used the peach dealings to make a peach honey. You can incorporate a thickening agent to get consistency for pie filling. She boiled the peelings in water with sugar about 6-7 hours. This makes a delicious honey for pancakes etc.

  • I do love the manner in which you have framed this particular concern and it does provide me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, coming from what precisely I have observed, I simply just wish as other comments pile on that people remain on issue and don’t start upon a soap box regarding the news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this excellent point and whilst I do not really concur with this in totality, I value the point of view.

  • The very core of your writing while sounding agreeable originally, did not really work very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do nicely to fill in those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be fascinated.

  • Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects? Appreciate it!

  • Thanks for the useful information on credit repair on your blog. A few things i would offer as advice to people would be to give up the particular mentality that they’ll buy today and pay out later. As a society we all tend to do that for many issues. This includes family vacations, furniture, along with items we’d like. However, you must separate the wants from all the needs. When you’re working to boost your credit score make some sacrifices. For example it is possible to shop online to save cash or you can look at second hand outlets instead of pricey department stores pertaining to clothing.

  • Susie Wawers says:

    Many thanks for your post. I want to comment that the tariff of car insurance varies greatly from one insurance plan to another, due to the fact there are so many different facets which contribute to the overall cost. For example, the model and make of the vehicle will have an enormous bearing on the purchase price. A reliable ancient family automobile will have a less expensive premium when compared to a flashy sports car.

  • Valuable information. Lucky me I found your web site by accident, and I’m shocked why this accident did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

Helping Hands
Thank you for your generous donations to the rescue fund for Jack and Diana. Both of these wonderful Percheron horses were saved from the kill pens of slaughter auctions.

Jack is recovering from a severe leg injury and has many more months to go before his wounds are healed.

Diana could barely walk on her broken hooves. With extensive and expensive farrier work she is now standing tall and without pain.

She has at least a year ahead of her before her broken hooves will grow out to become healthy new feet to stand on. Her treatment will require ongoing farrier work expected to total into the thousands of dollars.

Jack and Diana both need a few hundred pounds on their bodies to be back in good health.

Through your generous donations and support Jack and Diana can expect a full return to their good health and sound footing.


My daughter's senior trip donation fund is now open. Thank you for contributing to her trip to visit England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Donation accepted through paypal.
