  1. Wash all your jars, lids, rings and keep them warm. Get your water bath canner ready by bringing water to a boil.
  2. In a large sauce pot bring water to a low boil. Add whole peaches for about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove peaches from water (be careful!!) and add immediately to 4 cups ice water with ¼ cup lemon juice. The peach peels should easily come off of the peaches. Once peeled add the peaches back into the cold water.
  4. After all the peels are removed slice the peaches and remove pit. Add them back into cold lemon water when done.
  5. Next combine the sugar, ClearJel, spices, and 3 cups water in a large saucepan.  Stir constantly over medium heat until the mixture thickens and begins to bubble.
  6. Add ¼ cup lemon juice and cook for another minute stirring constantly then remove from heat.
  7. Remove the peach slices from the cold lemon water and add to hot sugar mixture. Stir well to combine. Cook until peaches are heated through.
  8. Using a ladle scoop the peach pie mixture into hot jars leaving 1-inch headspace.
  9. Using a butter knife remove any air bubbles and then wipe rim clean. Add a band and jar lid and tighten hand tight.  Place jars in boiling water canner.
  10. Process jars for 30 minutes (adjusting the time for altitude as needed).
  11. Turn off heat, remove water bath canner lid, and let jars stand 5 minutes then remove jars and allow to cool. To not touch or move jar any more than necessary until completely cooled. Check lids for seal after 24 hours.  The lid should not flex up and down when pressed in the center.
  12. If the lid does flex put in the fridge and use up within 1 week.
