We have several older peach trees. The fruit is slow to ripen. This year the fruit is about plum size and good. How do I make peach preserves? Thanks.

You need to buy a box of Sure Jell and follow the directions. There is also a low sugar kind..should be side by side in the grocery store.
2 parts peeled sliced peaches (more if they are sweet)
1 part sugar
Combine sugar and peaches, cover with plastic and let set 2-3 hours or over night in the frig.
Bring to boil and let simmer until the desired thickness. Stir every so often and skim if needed. I don't can but I freeze them in heavy duty freezer bags with the air squeezed out (one pint per bag). I have a stand alone freezer.
