Want a tasty pie filling? Then try this delicious recipe – its just so good! If you want you can add a bit of cinnamon or almond extract. This recipe can be processed in a Water Bath Canner. So here’s what to do…
Start by preparing jars, and get water in your canner heating.
Peel your peaches.
Slice the peaches in half and throw away the pit. You’ll notice a ‘seam’ down one side of your peach. If you slice around the diameter of the peach following this line you will be able to pluck the pit right out.
Slice peaches into 1/2 to 1 inch slices. To prevent browning of peaches you will want to slice the peaches into a pot with a light syrup.
Or treat with Fruit Fresh. This should be available in the canning sections at the grocery store or the hardware store. Follow the instructions on the package.
Bring water to a boil in a large pot. In batches of about 6 cups each place peaches into boiling water. Boil peaches 1 minute after the water returns to a boil. Drain but keep warm in a large pot or bowl. Prepare about 6 quarts sliced peaches.
Combine water, sugar, and clear jel, in a large pot. Heat and stir until mixture begins to thicken and bubble. Add lemon juice and any spices or flavorings and boil 1 minute more.
Gently add sliced peaches and heat for 3 minutes. Stirring constantly.
Fill your jars leaving a 1 inch headspace. Wipe the rims clean, remove any air bubbles and place your lids.
