Peach Peel Jelly (aka Peach Pit Jelly)
I searched the net for a peach peel jelly recipe that didn't require 4 quarts of peels. That would require a bushel of peaches, something that wasn't going to find it's way into our home anytime soon. So I improvised and came up with this lovely dark pink jelly instead. The flavor is delicious, like a peach Jolly Rancher! Wish I had a digital camera to show you how it sparkles.
PEACH PEEL JELLY
1.5 quarts peach peels and pits
5 c. water
Boil the above together, then cover tightly and simmer 45 min. Strain juice through cheesecloth. Discard pits and peels.
4 c. juice
5 c. sugar
1 package pectin (such as SureJell or Ball - NOT the sugar free kind)
Follow the directions in the pectin for cooked jelly. Enjoy!
