                         -Dottie Cross TMPJ72B
    4       lb           Ripe peaches
                         Pitted and quartered
                         -(about 3-1/2 quarts)
    2       c            Water
    2       c            Sugar
      1/4   c            Lemon juice
                         -Grated zest of 2 lemons
    2       ts           Ground cinnamon
      1/2   ts           Ground cloves
 
   In a large saucepan, bring the peaches and water to a boil over a medium
   heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until peaches are
   very tender. In a food processor fitted with the metal blade or a blender,
   process the fruit mixture in batches until smooth. Return the puree to the
   saucepan and stir in the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon, and
   cloves. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce the
   heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until thickened and reduced to
   about 6 cups, about 30 minutes. Ladle the peach butter into hot, sterilized
   jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headroom. Wipe the rims clean and put the lids on
   the jars. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Remove the jars
   from the water and cool completely at room temperature. Makes about 3
   pints. Source: “An Edible Christmas” (A Treasury of Recipes for the
