 Ingredients List

  • 12 Whole cloves
  • 1 Gingerroot, 1 inch piece
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick, 2 inches
  • 24 Whole Allspice grains
  • 1 Orange, scrubbed
  • 2 lb Peaches, fresh, ripe
  • 4 c Granulated Sugar
  • 2 c Cider Vinegar


Servings: 12

Spread out a small square of cheesecloth and set cloves, gingerroot,
cinnamon and allspice in centre, then tie shut with string. Slice orange
thinly. Plunge peaches into a large pot of boiling water for 10 seconds.
Remove peaches with slotted spoon and plunge in bowl of ice water. Peel and
set aside. Repeat this blanching and chilling process with the orange
slices and set aside. Using a medium-heavy saucepan and medium heat,
combine sugar and vinegar and heat until sugar is dissolved. Add bag of
spices and peaches and cook over low heat for 8 minutes, then remove with
slotted spoon and divide between 2 or 3 two-cup glass preserving jars. Add
orange slices to the same sugar mixture and cook over low heat for 5
minutes, then remove with slotted spoon and add equal amounts to each of
the jars of peaches. Discard spice bag and boil syrup over medium heat for
4 - 5 minutes. Pour over fruit in jars. Let cool, then seal shut. Store in
a cool place for up to 1 month, then refrigerate. Serve with roast pork,
goose or ham. Makes from 2 to 3 pints.
