Peach Preserves and Oatmeal Scones



                                                            Hello everyone,
       It is a beautiful September day here so I am just popping in for a few minutes to share the recipe for               Oatmeal Scones that some of you asked for and the peach preserve recipe as well.
                                Last week I made some peach preserves from the Niagara baskets of peaches that I                                     look forward to each year.Our winters seem to be too cold for peaches to grow here                                    although that may be changing as I see peach trees are being sold here now.
                                 The peach preserve recipe was basically the recipe here except I chopped by hand
                            instead of using the food processor and I used less sugar as they will not last long anyway!    
              The oatmeal scone recipe is pretty easy to make and they are delicious.

                   1 1/2 cups of flour- I usually use part spelt and part unbleached white flour
                    1/2 cup of rolled oats
                     1/3 sugar
                      1 Tablespoon baking powder
                      1/2 teaspoon salt
                       1/3 cup of melted butter
                        1 egg
                          1/3 cup of milk

                        whisk dry ingredients together and then whisk liquid ingred. and add to dry.
                        mix gently together - knead a few times then flatten into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
                        Place on cookie sheet.

                         Sprinkle top with a tablespoon  of sugar or sugar and cinnamon.
                         Bake at 375 for about 15 min.

                          Enjoy !
    Thank you for your visit and I hope you will enjoy the scones and peach preserves.

                                  Carolyn

Carolyn!! Your peach jam looks delicious. The photos are beautiful too. I have longed to can this year but my schedule hasn't allowed it. By the way, I have wondered how you can with the jars with the glass lid and little wire that holds it on!

Hi Rachel,
Life does seem busy for sure. I used these jars because I wanted them to look pretty and I knew the peaches wouldn't last long and I store them in the frig until they are used.

Hope you have some time to relax this weekend!

Your old jars are so beautiful holding the jams. I am printing out the recipe for your scones and putting it on my list to make for this weekend. I don't have peach jam but my neighbor made apple butter and shared some with me. That should go great with your scone recipe.
