Rinse the peaches well, remove the seeds and cut into slices. If desired, scald peaches with boiling water and peel.
Put a layer of peaches in a sterile jar, mix sugar with citric acid and sprinkle peaches, repeat layers of peaches and sugar to the top of the jar.
Cover the jar with a lid and place it in a pot of water; be sure to put a towel or a special stand on the bottom. Sterilize the peaches after boiling water for about 40 minutes, periodically shake and add the remaining sugar. Sugar in peaches should be completely dissolved. Twist the jar, turn the lid down, cover with a blanket until completely cooled.
Peaches are ready.
Peaches in their own juice are very tasty, juicy, tender and sweet. The amount of sugar will depend on the sweetness and ripeness of the fruit.

Peaches can be prepared in pieces, cut in half or in general, only you can choose.
