For peach jelly select peaches not quite ripe enough for eating. Rub off the down with a coarse cloth, cut in pieces, and remove the stones. Cover with water and cook slowly, closely covered, until the fruit is quite soft. Pour into a jelly bag and allow to drip.

Peaches never make a firm jelly that will retain its shape when turned from a mould or glass, but it is delicious for cake fillings, sauces, and puddings.
