Place the peach slices with syrup in blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. In an extra-large bowl, combine the hot mixture with the pureed peaches, peach nectar and lemon juice. Divide the mixture into four 1-quart freezeable containers and freeze overnight. (May be frozen for up to 3 months.)
