4 cups roughly chopped peaches
1 1/2 to 2 cups sugar
2 cloves (laung / lavang)
25 mm. (1") stick cinnamon (dalchini)
1/2 tbsp lemon juice

  1. Mix together the peaches, sugar, cloves and cinnamon along with 1 tablespoon water in a non-stick or a heavy bottomed pan.
  2. Allow the peaches to simmer in their own liquid, over a slow flame for about 20-25 minutes till the mixture thickens (this preserve will thicken without any additives as the fruit contains pectin).
  3. Add the lemon juice and mix well.
  4. Cool and store refrigerated in an air-tight container.
