Elberta Peach Syrup
Our sweet Elberta peaches make an incredible syrup. Handcrafted in small batches and made with less sugar than traditional recipes only cane sugar, never high fructose corn syrup. Use it to flavor tea or as a topping for pancakes and French toast, stir a little into your hot cereal, pour it over ice cream or as a basting sauce when grilling.
Our peach syrup is made for Elberta peaches we grow in our orchard. Elberta is a famed peach for canning, originating in Georgia in 1870 and named after the wife of Georgia peach grower Samuel Rumph. Renowned for its sweet succulent fruit, this attractive yellow fruit has splashes of crimson when ripe. Like many of our fruits you won’t find Elberta peaches in the supermarket, they have been replaced by newer varieties which ship better, but these new peaches can’t beat the flavor of the Elberta.
To capture the fantastic flavor of these peaches, we process them directly from the tree. We’ve found peaches like several other fruits lose flavor when refrigerated. This is one advantage of both growing the fruit and processing the syrup! As with all of our jams, jellies and syrups, we use 20% less sugar in our recipes.
