SPICED PEACH PRESERVES
Spiced Peach Preserves
- 4 1/2 c. peaches (or nectarines) peeled and finely chopped
- 1 box low sugar pectin
- 2 T. ginger
- 1 T. cloves
- 1 T. nutmeg
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 c. lemon juice
- 1 c. water
- 3/4 to 1 c. sugar (to taste)
Put chopped peaches in a large saucepan and add the pectin, spices, lemon juice, and water. Bring to a full boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.
Add the sugar and return to a full boil.
Boil 1 minute and remove from heat.
Skim off foam and ladle into washed jars (I use old glass mayonnaise jars and the like).
Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
This will keep for a very long time; we've had a jar in the refrigerator for almost a year and it's still good.
