Spiced Peach Jam

This is one of our favorite jam recipes (besides Huckleberry!). My mom also just found out that it makes super bee trap bait!

Spiced Peach Jam

4 C (about 3lbs) ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and ground or chopped fine
1/4 C lemon juice
7 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 (6oz) bottle liquid pectin
  • Combine peaches and lemon juice.
  • Add sugar and spices ~ mix well. Place over high heat and bring to a full rolling boil; boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat; immediately stir in pectin. Skim off foam with metal spoon. Cool slightly, stir and skim by turns for 5 minutes. Ladle into hot sterilized jars and seal.
  • Let jam sit about 2 weeks before using.

Makes 6 half pints.

That sounds really good! I make alot of jam and have never made spiced peach jam, although lots of regular peach . So far we have cherry and raspberry and am hoping to make some strawberry today. I have never used liquid pectin. Does it work better?

I don't know if the liquid works better or not! I just use what the recipe tells me. :-) It works great for this recipe. ;-)

mmm... think I'm going to have to try this. Peaches are in season and in abundance here now.
