An old-fashioned preserve. From the US Regional Cookbook, Chicago Culinary Arts Institute, 1947. While this recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, it is perfectly safe if processed using modern methods. If you are unfamiliar with these techniques, please go to for the current information.

Made some of this with the abundance of the peaches we got this year. The peaches are kinda small but have a wonderful taste. Anyway this turned out great. A bit sweet so I may cut back on the sugar some when I do some more this afternoon. Thanks!
