    Sharon Johnson's Peach Preserves for Cold Mornings

  • 3 pounds ripe peaches, peeled and quartered
  • l/2 medium-size orange, quartered and seeded
  • 2 Red Savina habaņeros, (seeds and all)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 Cup honey (the lightest, mildest you can find)
  • Combine peaches, sugar, and honey in a Dutch oven; stir well. Cover and let stand 45 minutes. Place knife blade attachment in food processor bowl; add orange quarters and habaņero chiles. Process until finely chopped, stopping once to scrape down sides.

    Place orange, habaņero chiles, and an equal amount of water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until orange rind is tender.

    Bring peach mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high, and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes, stirring often. Add orange mixture. Bring to a boil; cook, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until candy thermometer registers 221, stirring often. Remove from heat; stir in almond extract. Skim off foam with a metal spoon.

    Quickly pour hot mixture into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands. Process jars in boiling-water bath 5 minutes. Yield: 6 half-pints.
