To Preserve Peaches

Of your fairest and best coloured peaches, take a pound, and with a  
wet linnen cloth wipe off the white hoare of them:  then perboyle them  
in halfe a pint of white wine, and a pint and a halfe of running  
water; and being perboyled, pill off the white skinne of them, and  
then weigh them :  take to your pound of peaches, three quarters of a  
pound of refined sugar, and dissolve it in a quarter pint of white  
wine, and boyle it almost to the height of a sirip, and then put in  
your peaches, and let them boyle in the sirup a quarter of an houre or  
more, if need should require : and then put them up, and keep them all  
the year.

I like the wine idea and when the Ontario peaches come in I think I  
will give this a shot.
