Peach preparation process
Place the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds, and then drop in ice water to loosen skins. Peel, pit, and quarter the peaches. Using a large bowl, dissolve fruit pectin in 8 cups of water. Add cut peaches to bowl. Set aside. In a large stainless steel saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Drain peaches and add them to the boiling syrup. Once the pot returns to a full boil, remove from heat.
