  • whole cloves
  • 500
    ml
    white grape vinegar
  • 250
    ml

    g
    white sugar
  • 3
    cinnamon sticks
  • 3
    star anise
 

Method

 
Push three cloves into each peach and place in salt- or vinegar-water to prevent discolouration. Add to a pot of boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. Drain and place in sterilised preserve jars while preparing the syrup. Heat the vinegar, water and sugar together, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Leave to stand for 5 minutes. Place a cinnamon stick and star anise in each jar and top with the boiling syrup, filling each jar until just beneath the rim. Seal with sterilised lids and leave for a few days for flavours to develop. Makes 1 large old-fashioned preserving jar or 3 medium-sized jars.
