Peach Jam

Quick and Easy Peach Jam

Summer fruit season is my favorite - with so many delicious options! I got a bunch of peaches recently and decided to make some peach jam - from scratch! I'll tell you - it's so good - I've eaten two jars of it already.

  • Fill small sauce pan half full with water and bring to boil. Remove from heat. Place rings and lids from jars into the water. Be sure jars are washed.
  • Peel and pit peaches. Finely chop fruit. Measure 4 cups of fruit into 6-8 quart sauce pot.
  • Add lemon juice and fruit pectin and stir until well blended.
  • Bring to a full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe rims and threads. Cover with lids and rings. Screw bands tightly.
  • Place jars upside down on a towel until cooled.
  • Check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and you'll need to refrigerate.
