Holiday Peppery Peach Sauce
pounds fresh peaches or three 16-ounce package frozen unsweetened peach slices
cups sugar
5 1/2 ounce can peach or apricot nectar
cup cider vinegar
tablespoon lemon juice
fresh hot red chile pepper or habanero chile pepper, seeded and very finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon)*
teaspoon salt
1 1/2
cups fresh raspberries
  1. Wash fresh peaches, if using. Peel and pit peaches. Place half of the fresh or frozen peaches in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until peaches are very finely chopped. Transfer chopped peaches to a 6-quart pot. Repeat with remaining peaches. (You should have 5 cups pureed peaches.)
  2. Add sugar, nectar, vinegar, lemon juice, chile pepper, salt, and garlic to pot. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until desired consistency, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in raspberries.
  3. Ladle hot sauce into hot, clean half-pint canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace.** Remove air bubbles and wipe jar rims; adjust lids. Process filled jars in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes (start timing when water returns to boil). Remove jars from canner; cool on racks.
