These spiced canned peaches are wonderful and smell great. If you have a bunch of peaches and don't know what to do with them, can them.

Just canned a batch of peaches yesterday. I substituted brown sugar for the sugar and added 2/3 c brandy to the syrup - yummy! I'm having to fight off my family, they want to open all the jars now, I want to save them at least a few days... And BTW, this is NOT open kettle canning. This is hot-water bath canning, which is endorsed by the USDA for HIGH-acid foods, like this one. Being a bit of a science geek, I measured the pH of the syrup out of curiosity. It was 3.5, well below the 4.6 necessary to kill any botulism spores. Very safe, and I intend to use this recipe as long as we can get fresh peaches!!!
