Peach Butter
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 1/2 pounds peaches
1 3/4 cups granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring

Place peaches in boiling water 2 at a time for 30 seconds to one minute.
Remove from water and peel. Remove pits. Grind or mash peaches, then
combine with other ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil on
medium heat, stirring often. Boil, again stirring often, for about one
hour and fifteen minutes until thickened. A spoonful on a chilled saucer
should remain smooth with no watery sign.

Fill hot sterilized jars to within 1/4-inch from the top and seal.

This recipe yields 2 half-pints and one smaller jar.
