OLD - FASHIONED PEACH PRESERVES
2 qts. sliced, peeled, hard, ripe peaches
6 c. sugar
Combine fruit and sugar; let stand 12 to 18 hours in cool place. Sterilize canning jars. Bring slowly to boiling, stirring frequently. Boil gently until fruit becomes clear and syrup thick (about 40 minutes). As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Skim if necessary. Pour hot preserves into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Wipe jar rims and adjust lids. Process 5 minutes in a boiling waterbath.
