We live in a big agriculture town. We are loving all the cheap fresh produce. This week I got a case of peaches (25 pounds) from the grower for $12. Honestly we ate about half of them. I wanted to bottle the rest for when produce is not as plentiful. I didn't want to make them sugary though. I was thrilled when Costco had this Welches 100% peach and grape juice on their coupon. I used this method to peel the peaches. I sliced them and stuffed them in the jar (don't be shy or you will be sad with how much space you gain when they are boiled). I boiled the juice and poured it over them leaving about an inch of space in the top. Wipe the top rims and add boiled fresh lids. I then put the bottles in a large pot of boiling water (cover the jars by at least an inch). The quarts cooked for 25 minutes and the pints 20 minutes.
