Peach Jam
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 quarts crushed, peeled and pitted peaches
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 cups sugar
DIRECTIONS
  1. 1. Combine peaches and water in large saucepan. Cook gently for 10 minutes. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Bring slowly to a boil. Cook rapidly to gelling point, about 15 minutes.
  2. 2. As mixture thickens, stir to prevent sticking. Remove from heat. Skim foam is necessary.
  3. 3. If canning, ladle hot jam into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4″ headspace. Adjust two-piece caps. Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
My husband and I bought a jar of peach jam from an amish woman at a fair and loved it so much we had to find out how to make it! This recipe came pretty close.
