Canning Peach Pie filling is pretty much the same for everyone the recipe doesn't vary much unless you're making a special version or adding other ingredients. Pie filling are the level 2 canning as I call it I started at level 1 of Jams then moved on to Pie filling. Most people start with apple pie but I had peaches so I started with peach pie filling.
1 Quart 7 QuartsSliced fresh peaches 3-1/2 cups 6 quartsGranulated sugar 1 cup 7 cupsClear Jel® 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp 2 cups + 3 tbspCold water 3/4 cup 5-1/4 cupsCinnamon (optional) 1/8 tsp 1 tspAlmond extract (optional) 1/8 tsp 1 tspBottled lemon juice 1/4 cup 1-3/4 cups
Quality: Select ripe, but firm fresh peaches. Red Haven, Redskin, Sun High, and other varieties of similar quality are suitable.Yield: 1 quart or 7 quarts.Procedure: Peel peaches. To loosen skins, submerge peaches in boiling water for approximately 30-60 seconds, and then place in cold water for 20 seconds. Slip off skins and prepare slices 1/2-inch thick. Place slices in water containing 1/2 tsp of ascorbic acid crystals or six 500-milligram vitamin C tablets in 1 gallon of water to prevent browning. For fresh fruit, place 6 cups at a time in 1 gallon boiling water. Boil each batch 1 minute after the water returns to a boil. Drain but keep heated fruit in a covered bowl or pot.Combine water, sugar, Clear Jel®, and, if desired, cinnamon and/or almond extract in a large kettle. Stir and cook over medium high heat until mixture thickens and begins to bubble. Add lemon juice and boil sauce 1 minute more, stirring constantly. Fold in drained peach slices and continue to heat mixture for 3 minutes. Fill hot jars without delay, leaving 1-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace if needed. Wipe rims of jars with a dampened clean paper towel. Adjust lids and process immediately. Process in a water bath canner for 20 minutes.Recipe from USDA Home canning
