  1. Put the mashed peaches in a large pot.
  2. Add the vanilla, maple syrup, and calcium water. Stir.
  3. Turn the burner on to start heating the mixture in the pot.
  4. Put the lemon juice in a bowl. Add in the pectin powder a half-teaspoon at a time, whisking after each addition, until all pectin powder is in.
  5. When the pot mixture hits a boil, add the pectin mixture a small dollop at a time, stirring all the while.
  6. When the pectin mixture is all in, let the mixture cook for 1 to 2 more minutes.
  7. Remove from heat.
  8. OPTIONAL: Taste, and see if you want any more sweetener in it; if so, add maybe 1/4 teaspoon of liquid stevia or a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup at a time until it's right for your taste or your crowd. Could be too late to add a solid sweetener such as sugar, splenda, etc, that needs cooking to dissolve.

  9. Ladle into 125 ml (4 oz) or quarter-litre (1/2 US pint / 8 oz) jars.
  10. Leave 1 cm (1/4 inch) headspace.
  11. Debubble, adjust headspace.
  12. Wipe jar rims.
  13. Put lids on.
  14. Process in a water bath or steam canner.
  15. Process either size jars for 10 minutes; increase time as needed for your altitude.
