Peach Jam

You may remember that we went to the Peach Orchard awhile back. Well those peaches didn't last very long! We enjoyed Breakfast Parfaits with Homemade Granola, Peach Cake and Peach Jam.

This recipe is almost identical to the Strawberry Jam recipe. 

Peach Jam in 3 Steps

5 cups peaches, pitted, peeled and crushed
2 cups sugar
3 Tbsp lemon juice

Stir peaches, sugar and lemon juice in bowl. Let stand for 10 mins. 

Add pectin gradually to prevent clumping. Stir for 3 mins.

Ladle jam into 6 clean half-pint jars and let stand for 30 mins.

Jam can be stored in the fridge for 3 weeks or in the freezer for 1 year.

(Note: If you don't want to make 6 jars, use this great tool from Ball to get the right measurements.)
Probably the best paring knife ever!
Peaches, Peaches, Peaches
I love canning jars
Particularly these quilted ones
Ready for the freezer


  1. Dear Kate,

    My mouth is watering. I feel like I could
    scoop out some peaches from your bowl and delight in them! Thank you for the recipe and
    thank you for the visual treat, Honey.

    By the way, I agree with you,Kate, the paring
    knife you are using is the best! The price is great too.


  2. The Best Evahhhh!!!! YUMMO! miss t

  3. This looks wonderful!!

  4. Thank-you so very much for taking the time to post the recipe & directions.
    I made my first batch yesterday & it turned out sooo yummy!

    I did want to add for anybody else who might want to use this recipe...that I think it should read 6 "half pint" jars instead of regular pints.
    I only ended up with about 3.5 regular pints.

  5. Thanks Michelle. I have edited the post to read "half pint". I'm so glad that you are enjoying your jam.

    Welcome to the blog,


Look forward to hearing from y'all, just remember your southern manners.
