OLD FASHIONED PEACH OR PEAR PRESERVES 
4 lbs. thinly sliced fresh peaches or pears (about 1/4 of the fruit should
be slightly underripe)
4 lbs. sugar
1 lemon (juiced)

Place all ingredients in a large heavy stainless steel or enamel kettle; stir to mix. Then let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Set kettle over moderately high heat and boil, stirring constantly, for 20 minutes.

Skim froth from preserves. Then pour into hot sterilized half pint jars, filling to within 1/8-inch of the tops. Seal with a thin layer of melted paraffin. Label jars and store on a cool, dark, dry shelf.
