Peach Jam

Peach Jam 1

The peaches right now are so juicy I had to hold a paper towel under my chin just to eat one.  So, how could I resist the temptation to learn how to make peach and  make this peach jam recipe?  I used my Ball Jam & Jelly Maker and it was a cinch.  Now I have the taste of summer all year-long.

Ingredients

  • 2 2/3 cup peaches (7 large ripe peaches skinned, pitted, and rough chopped)
  • 3 tbsp. powder pectin
  • 1/2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 tbsp. bottled lemon juice
  • 3 1/3 cups sugar

Instructions

  1. Boil 4-5 jars and lids. Leave in hot water until ready to use.
  2. WASH, peel and pit peaches. Coarsely chop peaches, and then crush with a potato masher. Measure required quantity of crushed peaches and remaining ingredients for your recipe; set aside.
  3. SPRINKLE pectin evenly over bottom of the Pot fitted with the Stirrer. Add crushed peaches evenly over pectin. Pour lemon juice over peaches. Add butter/margarine to help reduce foaming.
  4. PRESS jam button – the cook time will automatically default to 21 minutes. Press enter.
  5. WAIT 4 minutes for appliance to sound 4 short beeps indicating that it is time to add sugar. Add sugar gradually while Stirrer continues running. Place the Glass Lid on the Pot.
  6. THE APPLIANCE will continue to automatically stir your ingredients while it cooks. Stay within earshot of the Jam & Jelly Maker, the appliance will beep again at the end of the process signaling jam cooking is complete. Press cancel, unplug the appliance and immediately remove Glass Lid.
  7. REMOVE Stirrer using a pot holder. Skim foam, if necessary, from top of jam.
  8. Remove 1 jar at a time from hot water and place funnel in top. Add peach jam until 1/8 inch from top.
  9. Wipe rim of jar with damp paper towel.
  10. Remove lid (2 pieces) from hot water and place on jar.
  11. After all jars are filled carefully put back in water on wire rack covering top with 2 inches of water. Bring the water back to a boil and boil for a minimum of 10 minutes.
  12. Very carefully remove jars from water and let sit for 24 hours.
  13. Jars should seal and you may hear a ping from sealing.
