Candied Peaches

Candied Peaches

Take 25 large peaches and let them lie in water for a little while; then remove the
down by rubbing with a cloth. Stone them and put them in a kettle with two lbs
granulated sugar .. a layer of peaches and a layer of sugar .. add one-half pint
water and place on a moderate fire. When the syrup is thick, take off the fire, and
put peaches and syrup together in a dish. Flatten the peaches with a wooden
spoon and turn from time to time, putting them in a place where the sun will shine
on them. When they are nearly dry roll in colored sugar. They will keep a long
time.

From 1903
