I have finished canning my peaches. Got 9 quarts for pie. Well, ok, it is actually a simple syrup with peaches in it.
1 gallon of water, 4 oz of pectin, and 2 cups of sugar. Blanch peaches, and pull off the skin. Pit and throw into the pot with the above mixture. Heat through and can.
The liquid you have left is a wonderful peach flavored simple syrup that can be used for tea sweetening or pops.
I processed 2 quarts of the simple syrup.
I have peach butter simmering on the stove now.
