1. I drove seven hours to the cabin, carrying along a huge box of Colorado peaches.  I had never made preserves before and I thought a weekend spent with my mom at our cabin would be the perfect opportunity.  And I was right!

    I think canning anything in a cabin makes you feel like you're being taken back to another era!  Nevertheless, here is our recipe for Peach Preserves:  { Adding a cabin is optional! }

    Peach Preserves // recipe  no.  171

    {1}  12 Fresh Peaches, skin removed, pitted & chopped
    {2}  4 1/2 Cups white sugar
    {3}  1 (2 ounce) package dry pectin


    {1}  Crush 1 cup chopped peaches in the bottom of a large saucepan.  Add remaining peaches, and set pan over medium-low heat.  Bring to a low boil and cook for about 20 minutes or until peaches become liquid.

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

    {3}  Remove from heat after 1 minute, and transfer to sterilized jars.  Process in hot water bath canner for 10 minutes.  Let cool and place on shelf.  The seals will begin to POP! - they're ready!

    Cook time:  1 hour    Prep time:  2 hours    Yields:  8 cups
