Fourteen pounds of processed peaches from my one peach tree were turned into 11 liters of pressure canned peach juice for long term storage. Pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes. Each jar contains 1.27 pounds of peaches. Peaches have almost no gross fiber The pits were removed.Pictures depict the process.

That’s a great harvest there! I took a different route with my peaches though...

Is this for immediate consumption? How is this preserving for long term storage?

If you wanted to drink it straight you could, but 110 proof tastes a little hot coming out of the still. My final product was watered down to ~80 proof.

This actually stored great. I ended up with about 1 gallon of moonshine from about 5 gallons of mash (only used about 7 pounds of peaches plus some other ingredients). Granted, I only managed to keep it on my shelf for about 6 months before it was gone, but it showed no signs of losing freshness. Instead of adding glycerol to the finished product to smooth it out, I actually added a quarter of a yellow peach and let it sit for about 3-4 weeks before consumption (discarded the peach). Tasted even better.

*The finished product was stored in 8 oz mason jars and the quarter of a peach was added to each individual jar.
