    Charlotte J's Note:

    Clear Jel is a modified food starch (powdered form) that will not break down in high heat during processing. DON'T SUBSTITUTE!! Clear Jell is well worth the effort, it leaves a cleaner and thicker filling that is simply delicious. Kitchencraft (1-800-776-0575) in Waterville, IA sells it by the 1# ($3.25 + S&H) or 5# bags. Also sold by Bakers Catalog (King Arthur Flour) and also at Oh, now that about does it, even sells the stuff!

      I love this recipe. I always had extra juice for the filling after cannin. I now use an 8 cup Tupperware mix and store to measure the peaches. I fill it 3 times to the brim with peaches, and use the othe ingredients as listed. I end up with 7-8 quarts of pie filling with no loss of flavor. My favorite peach for this recipe is the red Haven, also a freestone peach

      It took me more than 8 pounds of peaches to get 24 cups. I made two batches (separate, because I don't have huge enough pots!) and they both came out wonderful. I used Hale peaches, tree ripened and freestone so they were easy to prep. I will definitely use this recipe repeatedly. The Clear Jel was hard to find locally but totally worth it in my opinion.
