I bought three big bags of nectarines off the cheap rack in the grocery store. They were in pretty rough shape, bruised and oozing.
An hour later, a big bowl of nectarine slices, and a quarter of a bucket of chicken scraps. Not bad for $3.
Final tally- eight quarts.
9 Cup water
2.25 Cup sugar
Peel and pit. Heat slices in light syrop to boiling. Rapid boil one minute. Fill hot, sterile jars.
Process BWB 10 minutes.
