Spiced Peaches

6 pounds fresh peaches
2 ounces broken stick cinnamon
1 ounce whole cloves
3 pounds granulated sugar
1 pint vinegar
1 cup water

Dip peaches in hot water and peel. Tie spices in a muslin bag. Combine sugar, vinegar, water and spices. Boil until clear, about 15 minutes. Stick a clove in each peach. Add peaches to jar, enough to fill one jar at a time and cook until tender (8 to 10 peaches). Put a stick of cinnamon in each jar. Fill each jar to overflowing with hot syrup.
