Say a bad word Peaches
Early testing suggests there will have to be a next time.
8 cups mature but under ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
6 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cups brandy
Peel and slice peaches, mix with sugar in preserving pot, put in fridge over night to let the juices seep
Bring to a boil over low heat, simmer until sugar dissolves.
Increase heat to medium, simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to prevent scorching
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add lemon juice. Return to fridge
Bring mixture to boil over medium high. Boil rapidly for 15 minutes until peaches are translucent. Stir to prevent scorching.
Remove from heat. Skim if needed.
Add to jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Wipe rims. Seal according jar’s directions. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
