Canning Peach Salsa

6 cups of peaches (diced hard unripe but yellow peaches)

1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsp finely chopped garlic
2 tsp finely chopped ginger
1 cup light brown sugar
1-1/4 cups cider vinegar (5%)
1/2 cup water

Yield: About 6 half-pint jars 

Procedure: Wash all produce well. Peel and chop peaches into 1/2-inch cubes. Dice bell pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Finely chop yellow onions. Combine all ingredients in an 8-quart Dutch oven or stockpot. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce to simmering, and simmer 5 minutes. Fill hot solids into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Cover with hot liquid, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace if needed. Wipe rims of jars with a dampened clean paper towel. Adjust lids and process.
