{Peach Chutney Preserves}

4 cups peeled, pitted, & finely chopped peaches
3/4 cut cider vinegar
1 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/8 cup chopped gingerroot
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
7 1/2 cup sugar
1 bottle liquid fruit pectin

Put the peaches in a large kettle and add the vinegar, lemon juice, raisins, onion, gingerroot, salt and spices. Add the sugar and mix thoroughly. Place over high heat and bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Boil hard one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from head and stir in pectin immediately. Skim off the foam with a metal spoon and stir and skim for five minutes to cool slightly and prevent floating fruit. Ladle into hot sterilized glasses and cover with melted paraffin wax.
