    Nice, fresh peachy flavor. After processing the peaches floated to the top of the jars, I'm not sure how to correct that, but the flavor if really nice. It's not a a real thick jam. but I thought it was just right. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I made this recipe and was very disappointed. I believe that the amoutn of the peaches should be 4 cups not 8. I remade this with 5-1/2 cups sugar and 4 cups sugar and it came out fine. I now have 7 half pints and three pints of syrup to put over ice cream.
