4 cups sliced ripe peaches
4 cups sugar
juice of 1 lemon
Peel and slice the ripe peaches, removing any bruises or bad spots; put into a large, heavy pan. Add the sugar to the peaches and cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a roiling boil, stirring constantly. Add the lemon juice. Continue cooking until thickened, stirring constantly. Pour into hot, sterilized canning or jelly jars and seal. If a lid does not seal, place in refrigerator.
This is so good served on toast, biscuit, pancakes, etc. Even good as an ice cream topping.
