Spirited Peaches Spirited Peaches

Sweet peaches with a hint of rum add a ray of summer sunshine to the table when peaches from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia and the Lake Erie shore and Niagara Peninsula in Ontario are a distant memory. Serve as an adult-only dessert over ice cream or waffles. For a cinnamon twist, add a stick to the syrup.

In large saucepan, bring 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) water and sugar to boil. Add peaches; boil gently for 5 minutes.

Using slotted spoon, pack peaches into prepared 1-cup (250 mL) canning jars, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) headspace. Divide rum among jars.

Return syrup to boil; pour over fruit to leave 1/4-inch (5 mm) headspace. Remove any air bubbles by sliding rubber spatula between jar and peaches; readjust headspace if necessary. Seal with prepared discs and bands. Process in boiling water canner for 20 minutes.
