Hibiscus Peaches

These lovely peaches are a nice combination of sweet and sour.  These are as simple to make as any peach in syrup.  I am trying to decide what I am going to use them for first a peach blini or pancakes.  Maybe both, brunch anyone.

5 lbs peaches
6 c water
1 c sugar or honey
3 T hibiscus 
2 lemons, juiced

Place the sugar, hibiscus, lemon juice and water in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer.  Boil for at least 15 mins or until you have a thin syrup.  Strain the Hibiscus syrup.  Skin the peaches and slice.  Add the peaches and boil for 5 mins.  Remove the peaches from the syrup and place in your jars.  Cover with the syrup.  Process for 20 mins for pints and 25 mins for quarts.
