- Combine peaches and water in a nonreactive 3-quart pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until peaches are soft and have colored the liquid, 20 to 25 minutes. Strain peaches and their juice through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl. Let peaches stand, occasionally giving them a gentle press with the back of a spoon, 5 minutes. Discard peach solids.
- Return strained juice to pot. Stir in honey to taste. Bring to a boil. Skim off and discard any foam that appears on top. Taste and add lemon juice to adjust sweetness. Pour hot syrup into clean half-pint jars or bottles, leaving 1/2 inch headspace and using wide-mouth jars if freezing. Wipe rims clean with a damp paper towel.
- Let cool completely (about 1 hour). Apply clean lids. Store in fridge up to 3 weeks or in freezer up to 6 months.
- Cook's Note:
- How much honey you'll need depends on the sweetness of your peaches.

Very easy recipe, not as thick as some syrup. May reduce water to help thicken next time. Great tasting & will use again.
Yummy sounding idea but, Didn't work for me at all. Never able to reach syrup consistency. Very weak tasting. Wasted good local honey & peaches.
