Since I didn't have any peach preserves for my Peach Cream Pie Glace`, but I did have plenty of nice, juicy South Carolina peaches, I made my own peach preserves. This turned out really good. Not too sweet, and very fruity.

2 cups of chopped peaches or puree
1 cup apple juice concentrate
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. dark corn syrup
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Place all ingredients in a 1-quart heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a low-boil and stir often to keep bottom from scorching. Cook for about 1 hour 15 minutes, or longer, until mixture is thickened. Pour into glass jar. Makes about 1 pint.
