RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

PRESERVES

RIPE PEACH CONSERVE, American

Ingredients
  • ½ cup chopped maraschino cherries
  • 3½ cups orange and peach mixture
  • 7½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup chopped nut meats
  • 1 bottle fruit pectin
Preparation Instructions

Chop about ½ cup whole maraschino cherries to make 1/3 cup of finely chopped cherries. Measure cherries into a very large saucepan. Remove sections, free from membrane, from 3 medium sized oranges: dice pulp. Peel and pit about 2 pounds fully ripe peaches. Chop very fine or grind. Combine fruits and measure 3 ½ cups into saucepan with cherries. Add nut meats. (If desired, crack ½ cup peach pits, remove kernels, blanch, shred and add to fruit mixture.)

Add sugar to fruit in the saucepan and mix well. Place over high heat, bring to a full rolling boil, and boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and at once stir in the pectin. Then stir and skim by turns for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Ladle quickly into clean glasses and paraffin immediately. Makes about 11 six-ounce glasses.
