    4       c            Sugar
    1       c            Water
    1       tb           Lemon extract
    6       lb           (around 24) ripe peaches,
                         -peeled and sliced
 
   1.  In a large saucepan, dissolve sugar in water over
   medium- high heat and bring to a boil;  cook for about
   5 minutes, or until syrup is clear. Skim off any froth.
   
   2.  Add vanilla and lemon extract, stir in peaches,
   and return to a boil. Watch carefully to prevent from
   boiling over.
   
   3.  Boil for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and skim off
   any froth.
   
   4.  Fill hot, sterilized jars (quart-size screw-top
   Mason jars) and adjust caps; a suction seal will form
   with cooling. Store in a cool, dark place. Serve with
   hot biscuits, or warm over vanilla or Texas peach ice
   cream.
   
   Makes 3 quarts.
