8 cups


  • 12 fresh peaches, pitted and chopped

  • 4 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 (2 ounce) package dry pectin


  1. Crush 1 cup of chopped peaches in the bottom of a large saucepan. Add remaining peaches and set the pan over medium-low heat. Bring to a low boil and cook until peaches become liquid with a few bits of peach left, about 20 minutes.

  2. Pour cooked peaches into a bowl, then measure 6 cups peaches back into the pan. Add sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat. Gradually stir in dry pectin; boil for 1 minute.

  3. Remove from heat and transfer to hot, sterilized jars. Top with lids and screw rings on tightly. Process in a hot water bath canner for 10 minutes. Let cool, then store on a shelf in a cool, dark place.
