Peach Schnapps

12 medium size peaches
Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
Peel 12 medium size peaches (easy if you first dip them into boiling water for 30-60 seconds and cool them in cold water). Remove the stones and cut the fruits in quarters. Put peaches and stones in a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Cover with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 1-2 months in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) for at least 1 month in a dark place at room temperature before serving.
