Monroe Peach and Godiva Chocolate Fondue

Yum, just yum.

Peach season is ending quickly in most areas.  You have to run, I mean run, and get yourselves some peaches.

Then head yourself on over to your local wine and spirit, aka liquor, store or Super Target if you are lucky enough to have one and pick up a bottle of delicious Godiva chocolate liqueur.   Head on home to get going on this yummy fondue.  Be sure to make your fondue before you begin imbibing in the liqueur because we all know that nobody can have just one little sip of Godiva.

Peach Fondue, the stuff food dreams are made of.  Use it as a jam, as a dessert topping, or on crepes and ice cream.  If you are feeling really decadent, just eat from a spoon.  One spoonful at a time, though.  Unfortunately, it does not qualify as a calorie free food item.

Monroe Peach and Godiva Chocolate Fondue

4 cups chopped, pitted, peeled peaches
4 tablespoons lemon juice
5 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 pouch liquid fruit pectin
1/2 cup Godiva Chocolate Liqueur


1.  Prepare canner, jars, and lids.

2. In a large, deep saucepan, combine peaches and sugar.  Over high heat, stirring constantly, bring to a full rolling boil.  Stir in pectin.  Boil hard, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.  Stir in Godiva liqueur.  Remove from heat and skim off foam.

3.  Ladle hot jam into sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.  Wipe rim.  Put on lids.  Place in canner, ensuring they are immersed in water completely.  Bring water to a boil and process for 10 minutes.  Remove canner lid.  Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars.  Cool and store.
