Peach-Blueberry Preserves

As a child I helped my grandmother can summer fruits and vegetables. I didn't always appreciate this activity when I was young, but now I miss her terribly and wish we could have another summer afternoon in her kitchen. I think she would enjoy this recipe. —Katie Ferrier Gage, Houston, Texas
