What Makes My Peach Marmalade Different?
If you taste this recipe, you'll discover that it's not your average peach marmalade. It has a unique flavor that comes by virtue of tsipouro. This delicious marmalade makes a wonderful topping for cakes, cheesecakes, yogurt, or ice cream. It's also a beautiful summery color!
What Is Tsipouro?
Tsipouro is a traditional unaged Greek brandy. It is distilled from the stalks, skins, and pits that remain after grapes are pressed. In my recipe, I use tsipouro without anise, though you can also find a version with anise, like ouzo.
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
1 hour 15 min
2 (500-gram) jars
- 1 kilogram peaches, peeled and chopped or slightly cut in a mixer
- 1 kilogram sugar
- 1/2 cup tsipouro
- 1 large lemon, juiced
- In a big heavy pot, add all of the ingredients except for the tsipouro. Bring it boiling over medium heat (e.g., from 1-9, the best is 6) for about 30 minutes.
- Mix it every now and then. When the marmalade has a golden orange color and is thick, take it off the stove.
- Add the tsipouro and mix well.
- Allow it to cool down completely before filling the jars.

Tsipouro? You have introduced me to something new and different. I love peaches anyway so I did not need much convincing.

I love peaches and good marmalade. I had to look up the meaning of tsipouro. Now that I know what it is, I am sure it is a flavorful component of your peach marmalade. Thanks for your recipe.
