Directions

Steam blanch the plums and peaches for 2 minutes, doing only 1 pound at a time. Skin and remove the pits. In a large kettle, combine all the ingredients. Bring them to a boil and then simmer until the fruit falls abart and the syrup is quite thick, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours,
stirring frequently to avoid scorching.

Ladle into hot 1/2-pint jars leaving 1/2 inch head-space, and then seal and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Remove the jars from the bath, cool, and store.
