Mixed Fruit in Light Honey Syrup
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Mildly flavored fruits combine well with honey for a luscious winter treat.
Serves: 6 pints
  • 12 cups mixed fruit (I used peaches, pears, and green grapes)
  • 1½ cups honey
  • 6 cups water
  1. Peel peaches and pears and cut into large pieces.
  2. Soak in a lemon juice/water combination if desired to reduce color change (optional).
  3. In a large pot, combine honey and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until well combined.
  4. Reduce heat to a simmer.
  5. Drain fruit and add to syrup mixture. Continue simmering until fruit is heated through.
  6. Spoon fruit into clean pint jars.
  7. Fill each jar with the hot syrup leaving ½ inch head space.
  8. Remove the bubbles (I use the handle of a rubber spatula, but there is an actual tool for this process. Just don’t use anything metal).
  9. Wipe the tops of the jars with a damp paper towel, and cover with two-piece caps. Process in a water bath for 20 minutes.
  10. Makes 6 pints with some syrup left over (use it for another batch or to make sorbet or to sweeten iced tea).
