Instant pot spiced peach butter is homemade from scratch, delicious, buttery and full of flavor from ripe peaches, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg.
We can easily make peach butter in the instant pot without standing near the stove for a long time and while the simmering time is slightly greater than the easy, delicious peach compote(peach sauce) or peach jam, it's still much less considering the time you need to make the peach butter in the traditional way on stove top or slow cooker.
And the peach butter is so much delicious and buttery too. Just make sure to use fresh, good quality, ripe peaches to make peach butter.
I have also tried fruit jams like mango jam, blueberry jam, strawberry honey jam, plum jam, cinnamon applesauce etc in the instant pot and as I mentioned above I have also made instant pot peach jam & instant pot peach compote (peach sauce for cheesecakes, pancakes)!

If you wonder what is the difference between jams and fruit butters, it is mostly in the texture.
The fruit butters mostly have a very buttery, thick spreadable texture than jams and they more often require more longer cooking time than fruit jams to achieve the smooth consistency of butter.
However, the process of making fruit butter is much easier with instant pot pressure cookers!

How To Make Spiced Peach Butter In Instant Pot
We need the following ingredients to make the spiced peach butter.
ripe peaches (peeled and sliced)
Steps To Follow (The Process)
Start by washing the peaches very well, then let's peel and slice the peaches (discard the pit).
Also squeeze out the juice from half of a medium sized lemon (we need two tablespoons of lemon juice), discard the seeds of the lemon if there is any in the juice.
Now add the sliced peaches, brown sugar and lemon juice to the instant pot, mix everything well.
Close the instant pot with lid in sealing position and cook for 15 minutes.
Wait for a natural pressure release once the cooking is finished.Once the pressure is all released, carefully open the lid.
Mash the contents using a potato masher and add cinnamon powder, vanilla extract and nutmeg powder, mix well.
Simmer the contents for about 20 minutes as you continue to stir and mash. Once the butter consistency is almost reached, also add the real dairy butter (optional, this is just for flavor), mix well and simmer for another couple of minutes.
Once the prepared peach butter is cooled enough, then transfer it to clean, dry and air tight glass jars and store in refrigerator for a couple of weeks time!
