Ingredients
Instructions
  1. To begin, follow the standard canning protocol and sterilize your jars.
  2. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Add the peaches to the boiling water in batches, boiling 1- 2 minutes. Remove the peaches with a slotted spoon and place into a bowl filled with water and ice. Repeat the process until all peaches are blanched, then peel the skin using a paring knife. Place the peeled peaches in a large bowl filled with water and a 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Place the peaches in the sterilized jars and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile in a large pot combine the brown sugar, white sugar, and 4 cups of water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Ladle the hot syrup over the peaches in the jar, leaving room for 1/2 cup of moonshine. Once all the syrup is distributed, pour 1/2 cup of moonshine into each mason jar, leaving a 1/2 inch headspace in each jar.
  4. Wipe the rims clean and top with a hot lid and band. Process the cans in boiling water for 25 minutes then remove from heat and let sit on the countertop to cool for 24 hours. If lids do not pop, process again or eat immediately. Place jars in a cool and dark place for up to 6 months.
