10 Step Peach Mead

I was out  in the country over the weekend and couldn’t help but notice that peach stands were on the side of the road.  It only made me think of one thing, Peach Mead. This one is just a classic.  When ever I’ve made this one in the past I end up making a spritzer out of it.  Also it’s pretty good if you add this in to BBQ sauce.  When you add it to your BBQ sauce it gives just enough citrusy notes to make lighter meats like pork or chicken taste simply amazing.

Yield 1 Gallon

Ingredients

4 lbs peaches halved and pitted

1 cup of sugar

Juice of 2 lemons

2 lbs Honey

1 teaspoon acid blend

1 teaspoon pectic enzyme
