Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a large pot of water until boiling.
  2. Score an X on both ends of each peach (this makes for easier peeling).
  3. Drop each peach into the boiling water for 30 seconds.
  4. Transfer peaches to a cold bowl of water.
  5. When the peaches are cool enough to handle, peel, pit, and slice the peaches.
  6. Add the sliced peaches, lemon juice, and water to a large saucepan.
  7. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 15-20 minutes or until the fruit is quite soft.
  8. Let the fruit cool slightly.
  9. Puree mixture in a food processor or blender.
  10. You should have about 6 1/2 cups puree.
  11. Transfer the puree back to the saucepan; add in the sugar.
  12. Cook over medium heat and stir very frequently to prevent scorching, for about 25-30 minutes, or until the mixture is thick and creamy.
  13. Transfer mixture into sterilized jars according to manufacturer's directions (Mom leaves about 1/4 inch headspace); cover with metal lids and screw on bands; process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.
