Apricot, Peach and Brandy Preserves

Apricot, Peach and Brandy Preserves

3 cups apricot halves
3 cups peaches, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 orange (juice and grated peel)
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
¾ cup brandy

1. In a large bowl, stir together the apricots, peaches, orange juice,
grated peel, brandy, light brown sugar, and almond extract.
2. Cover mixture and let it rest for at least 8 hours or overnight.
3. Add mixture to a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add in the granulated sugar.
4. Cook for about 30-40 minutes until mixture becomes thick and shiny. Stir mixture often to avoid fruit from sticking to pan. It should retain bits of apricots and peaches.
5. Pour the preserves into 5-6 half-pint Mason jars.
6. Let the jars cool in a dark dry place for about 3 weeks before serving.
