       Title: PEACH SPREAD
  Categories: Condiments, Jams
       Yield: 25 servings
  
       2 lb Peaches, about 8 medium
       1 ts Ascorbic acid color keeper
       2 c  Water
       7    Allspice berries
  
   Spread may be sweetened after cooking with aspartame
   or liquid artificial sweetener, if desired.  Authors
   liked the taste best without additional sweetener.
   
   Peel and pit peaches.  Place peelings and pits in a
   saucepan.  Cut up fruit into mixing bowl; stir in
   ascorbic acid color keeper; set aside.
   
   Add water and allspice berries to peelings in
   saucepan.  Bring to boil, reduce heat and cook about
   25 min or until liquid is reduced to about 1/2 cup.
   Discard peel and pits.
   
   Stir in peaches.  Bring to a boil; reduce heat and
   cook over medium heat 35 min, stirring and mashing
   occasionally.  Remove from heat, mash well or puree,
   if desired.
   
   Ladle into hot clean jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
   Wipe jar rims. Seal.  Process 10 min in a boiling
   water bath.  Store in a cool dark dry place.  Makes
   about 1 2/3 cups.
   
   May be stored in the refrigerator up to one month or
   in the freezer up to 3 months without the boiling
   water process.
