  1. Peel peaches and set aside. In a large pot over medium high heat, boil sugar, vinegar and water until the syrup is moderately thick.
  2. Add cloves, cinnamon and peaches. Bring to boil stirring occasionally until the peaches can be pierced to the pit with a fork.
  3. Fill sterilized canning jars with peaches. Continue boiling syrup until heavy and add to peaches to cover.
  4. In a large stock pot, pour water half way to top with boiling water. Using a holder, carefully lower jars into pot. Leave a 2-inch space between jars. Add more boiling water to cover them, about 2 inches above the tops. Bring to a boil and cover, processing for 35 minutes. Remove jars from pot. Put jars on a wood or cloth surface, several inches apart and allow to cool. Jars will be sealed.

This is among the best spiced peaches recipes that I have ever used. I canned mine alittle differently. I made the syrup and then poured it over the peaches that were raw packed into sterile jars. Then processed in a hot water bath for 25 minutes per pint. This seemed to be so much easier to me. The flavor was outstanding....not too strong...not to mild. Thanks for sharing this one!

These are way too sweet. The cinnamon & cloves make it taste like apples.

This recipe is GREAT!!! I only made half a recipe just to try it. I made it during Summer, 2001 with fresh peaches and let them sit a while in the spices, using them this past holiday season for our Thanksgiving table on the Turkey tray and then again around the Cranberry jello mold. Around Xmas and a few times this winter, I made Gingerbread pancakes as a special breakfast treat. I opened up a jar of my canned spiced peaches and put them in the blender to just cut them up for better mixing with the spices. I then used the cut spiced peaches and the " spices juice" mixture(instead of maple syrup) over the gingerbread pancakes. It was sooo good! Thank you Donna and thanks to all of your relatives in Georgia! We will enjoy this recipe and the wonderful combinations we've created for years to come here in the Shenandoah Valley!

A couple of days ago I took my three kids to the orchard for peach picking, and ended up with more peaches than I knew what to do with. I tried this recipe for my first ever attempt at canning. I cut the recipe in half, and it turned out great. The jars look so pretty, I'm planning to give some away in holiday gift baskets. I did end up with extra cooked peaches and not enough of the syrup to cover them in jars. Not such a bad thing because I got to taste the peaches, and they are incredible! The canning process wasn't as intimidating as I'd thought, so I'll certainly make these peaches again!

I made these to surprise my husband, who grew up in Georgia, and they turned out pretty well for my first time with canning. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend starting with less sugar than what this recipe calls for and adding to one's personal taste, as they tasted way too sweet for either of us.

I was looking for something different to do with my peaches and I found this. This is awesome. I don't like lots of sugar so I used only 1.5 cups of sugar. It is delicious. Thanks

Awesome spiced peaches. But the best part is the stuff in the bottom of the pan when you take off the remaining liquid... little bits of peaches that make a beautiful spiced peach jam... omg... scoop it into a little jampot and put it on the table... yum

These are wonderful. Don't be daunted by the canning process. Much easier that it sounds and this recipe is worth the trouble. Thanks.
