Recipe for Peach Preserves

Tip for Peach Preserves: Use the freshest fruit available. Wash, peel and remove blemishes. Chop into cubes. Measure 4 cups of chopped peaches. Mix 2 tablespoons of lemon juice with peaches to prevent oxidation. Wash jars. Place in boiling water for at least 3 minutes. Also sterlize lids and rings. Measure out the exact amount of sugar-5 cups and set aside. Stir in 1 box of artifical pectin. Add 1/2 teaspoon margarine to reduce foaming. Bring to a hard boil on high heat. Add sugar all a once and stir. Bring fruit back to a hard boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim foam with a cold metal spoon. Laddle into clean, hot jars and seal immediatley. Jars will be sealed when you hear a ringing sound of cooled jar. Avoid cold drafts on hot jars. Yield: 8 jelly/jam jars. Food for thought: O love the Lord...for he preserves the faithful and plentifully rewards the doer. Psalm 31:23
