Peach Butter

2 quarts (1900 ml) peach pulp (about 1 1/2 dozen medium, fully ripe peaches)
4 cups (960 ml) sugar

To prepare pulp: Wash, scald, pit, peel, and chop peaches; cook until soft, adding only enough water to prevent sticking. Press through a sieve or food mill. Measure pulp.

Add sugar; cook until thick, about 30 minutes. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Pour, hot, into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch (6 mm) head space. Adjust caps. Process pints (480 ml) and quarts (950 ml) 10 minutes in boiling water bath.

Yield: about 4 pints (1920 ml).
