    Debber's Note:

    What a treat! Too good for kids, of course, so hide them in the far back of the cupboard! *Preserving Nature's Bounty* by Frances Bissell gets all the credit for this one.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-16

    Yield:

    quart j ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 peaches, skinned, halved & pitted (2# total)
    • 4 cups sugar
    • 2/3 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    • brandy (see recipe)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare peaches (dip peaches into boiled water, then into ice-cold water--skins will slip off; then halve and twist to remove the pit).
    2. 2
      Make a syrup with the sugar & water in a large sauce-pan; stir mixture until it boils.
    3. 3
      To the boiling syrup, add peach halves and extract.
    4. 4
      When fruit is cooked (5-7 min), remove pan from heat, drain (reserve); cool fruits and spoon carefully into prepared jars.
    5. 5
      Half fill jars with reserved syrup, run a butter knife down the jar to remove air bubbles; fill jars to the top with BRANDY.
    6. 6
      Seal jars with lids, shake gently to mix syrup and brandy.
    7. 7
      Store in a cool dark place--use within six months.
    8. 8
      I've also added a pinch of cinnamon and cloves with VERY good results.

      These peaches are wonderful..I made them about 10 days ago and sampled some today. When I made them up, the taste of the brandy was quite overwhelming. Today, all the flavours have blended well together and just a hint of something that tastes like a liqueur. I also have a whole bottle of the liquid which I think will be a nice sauce over ice cream or over strawberries. I will try adding the spices next time I prepare these.
