  4. Wash peaches with skin on
  5. Dip peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds, then remove and drop them into ice water (this will loosen the skin)

  10. Keep syrup hot (not boiling) and pack peach halves, cut-side down, into hot jars (approx 4 peaches per pint-sized jar).
  11. Pour syrup into jars (push down on peaches with a spoon to get rid of air pockets)
  12. Wipe jar rims and threads of any syrup with clean rag
  13. Place lids and rims on jars
  14. Place jars back in the original pot of hot water. Cover and bring water back to a boil
  15. Boil jars for 25 minutes
  16. Remove jars and place on a dish towel on the counter (do not allow jars to touch)
  17. Cool over night and test the lids in the morning (if seal does not stay down when pressed, place jar in refrigerator and eat within a few days)
