Quick Holiday Spiced Peaches from Canned Peaches -Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner

I love that we can even find large cans of peaches at Dollar Tree and thought it would be fun to share a recipe for some Quick Spiced Peaches for the holidays. They come together in no time, from opening the can to doing dishes is less than 30 minutes. The key is that they do need marinating time in the refrigerator though. So we do need to do a little planning... The can I had were sliced peaches, you only need 2-3 days for them, the halves would require longer and would be fine for up to a week. I'd just whip the halves up the weekend leading to Thanksgiving:@) This made the house smell vinegary and spicy and we all really did enjoy this tasty side dish!
One summer I did make an old recipe for Canned Spiced Peaches here
That one is a true canning recipe that starts with fresh peaches right off the tree:@)

Quick Holiday Spiced Peaches-slightly adapted from Deep South Dish
For each 28-29 oz can of peaches:
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
10 cloves or up to 1/2 Tblsp whole cloves if your crew ~really~ loves them
2 sticks cinnamon, broken in half
1/8 tsp nutmeg, freshly grated if you can
juice from one slice of lemon-optional-no measurement, like you might add to a glass of iced tea
small pinch allspice-optional

  1. Drain juice from can into pot. Set peaches aside in a bowl or whatever you will store them in.
  2. Add everything else to pot, bring to a boil, stirring constantly, boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour over peaches, cover bowl or jar.
  4. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 days to a week.

Happy Holiday Planning Everyone:@)

I'm Joining:


  1. I haven't had spiced peaches in forever, these sound so good!

  2. Hi, Lynn. I looked back, and my notifications for your blogs stopped the first week in October---on Pig..I resigned up and it said I was signed up. On the DIY B blog I re-signed up, but have yet to receive a feed-burner reply. ? I will follow up with you tomorrow, if it doesn't go through.
    AND I have missed all your great ideas and must have thought I dropped off the face of the earth...sigh. Hope I can figure this out--I checked all my settings and block lists...not on my end---! Sandi

  3. These were one of my Mom's favorite things to have at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've never made them. I think I will this year, in her memory. Thank You for the recipe.

    1. Aw, I hope you like them and have a nice holiday season!

  4. I e never had sliced peaches, Lynn, and these sounds so easy!

  5. These sound good, what would you serve them with? A dollop of plain yogurt or something like that?

    1. Hello, I think they're just served as is, like a semi-pickled side dish?

  6. This is absolutely genius. The peaches would be a great go-along with my pork roast or even the venison that we plan on having during the holiday. I bet the house does smell good - I love the aroma of cloves.

  7. My husband loves spiced peaches but the store where I buy them charges an outrageous price. Going to try this recipe as a more afforable alternative.


Thank you for stopping by!
