Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups cantaloupe -- peeled
2 cups peaches
5 cups sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Wash and cut firm, ripe melon into 1-inch slices crosswise. Remove rind and seeds. Cut slices into even pieces. Peel, pit and slice peaches.

Mix fruit with sugar. Add lemon juice. Boil until fruit is clear. Simmer until thick, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally so it doesn't scorch. Pour boiling hot mixture into hot, sterilized jars; seal at once.
