millions of peaches!

Today is the last day that peaches are on sale at Sprouts for $0.39 per pound. These are great for making jam as well as for canning by themselves. Many people can peaches in sugar syrups. But, I opted to go the healthier way...and it is super yummy too!

fresh, ripe peaches
white grape juice or white peach grape juice concentrate

Boil peaches for 20-45 seconds. Immediately remove from boiling water and place peaches in ice water bath. This process allows the peach skins to peel off easily. Peel peaches and cut in halves/slices...whatever you prefer. Add peaches to jars, packed. Fill with juice that has been reconsituted using 2/3 the amount of water called for on the can. Fill jars, leaving appropriate headspace. Process in water bath for 20-30 minutes. Store and enjoy!
